ADA-Indiana accepting proposals for their 2018 Coros ADA Community Grants (close date January 19, 2018)
2018 ADA Grants for Local Communities
ADA-Indiana, in conjunction with Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, released a Request for Proposals for the Coros ADA Community Grants program.
The purpose of the Coros ADA Grants program is to promote increased implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in Indiana. Funding up to $3,000 is available for projects submitted by social service agencies, local government entities, schools, businesses, or other community organizations.
This year, ADA-Indiana will be seeking proposals in the area of transportation and/or employment. Some ideas might include (but not limited to):
- Host a training for youth on their rights under Title I of the ADA in employment; or training for older adults with disabilities on their rights under the ADA in transportation.
- Host a training on ADA and employment issues for local employers; or a training on the ADA and transportation for disability and aging advocates.
- Host a “community conversation” on employment for people with disabilities; or on the connection between transportation and employment in the community, or just on transportation (transit, alternative transportation, mobility) in the community.
Proposals will be due on Friday, January 19, 2018. The Request for Proposal is available on ADA-Indiana's website: www.adaindiana.org/grants.
To receive information on how to apply for the grants, contact Matt Norris, Project Staff for ADA-Indiana, at 812-855-6508 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
