Kessler Foundation Offers Grants to Increase Employment Outcomes for People With Disabilities

The Kessler Foundation's Signature Employment Grant Program seeks to fund cutting-edge, innovative, and other non-traditional solutions that increase employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities.

Projects must be collaborative, serve a large geographic area, and include multiple funding partners and stakeholders. In addition, initiatives or projects must have the potential for growth, scalability, or replication.
Any U.S.-based nonprofit organization or other tax-exempt group such as a public/private school, public institution, or government from any state is encouraged to apply.

Applicants may seek a funding amount between $100,000 and $250,000 per year, for maximum project funding of $500,000 over two years.

Visit the Kessler Foundation Web site for complete program information and application instructions.
