We’ve applied for several grants, we also have scholarships-free money for persons with disabilities for personal, educational and business use. Funds for people with disabilities are available through government, non profit and private entities. Disability money is granted through loans, scholarships, job training and grants. Individuals need to demonstrate a disability, whether physical or mental, to be considered for this funding. The largest provider of disability money and funding is the Federal government. Using Social Security benefits and funding for state and non profit organizations is where the Federal government gives away billions.
Define the Purpose for Disability Money
Individuals looking for disability funds should define the purpose for the money to find appropriate funding resources. Depending on the government agency or organization, the need and use for disability money has to be demonstrated and presented in a grant or loan application. Some agencies only require a written application for benefits; this depends on the type and purpose for the aid. Others require formal grant statements. Answering these questions may help individuals identify sources of money; Is the money to help with children educational expenses?
The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA.gov) is a website listing agencies’ programs helping people to find money opportunities. This database of money sources is only for information purpose and includes many programs for persons with disabilities. Qualified applicants are mainly agencies and non profits, but it also includes individuals with disabilities. Applications are accepted directly by the listed agencies. Each agency has its own guidelines for completing the application.
Examples of these programs:
•Fair Housing Programs
•Americans with Disability Act – Technical program
•Work Incentive Grants
•Education and Human Resources Grants
•Veteran Business Development
•Programs for students with intellectual disabilities
Even when the programs are intended to fund state agencies and non profits, individuals can use the information to apply to those entities receiving federal disability money.
