2008-2009 Grant Recipients
ADA-Indiana, with generous support from the Indiana Governor's Council for People with Disabilities, were pleased to support FIVE organizations through the 2008-2009 Keith Coros Community ADA Implementation Projects program. The purpose of the program is to promote increased implementation of the ADA in Indiana’s local communities. The funded organizations included:
Future Choices, Inc.
Future Choices, Inc., one of Indiana's Center for Independent Living based in Muncie, offered ADA training to their community using the ADA Audio Conference series. They partnered with the local government and transportation entity to provide the audio conference series in different locations each month.
The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce
The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce was funded to update and print their two ADA guides for local businesses: "Making Places of Public Accommodation Accessible to all" and "Hiring and Supporting People with Disabilities." These booklets were developed by the Chamber with the collaboration of local city officials and advocates.
If you would like a copy of either of these publications, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the most up-to-date version.
Indianapolis Resource Center for Independent Living
The Indianapolis Resource Center for Independent Living (IRCIL), another Center for Independent Living, worked with local partners to assist businesses and organizations in the Fountain Square neighborhood (Southeast Indianapolis) to create access for people with disabilities.
Indiana Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
The Indiana Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Indiana Transportation Museum were funded to explore ways to make the State Fair train accessible. Their project focused on reviewing the existing historical train and the existing stops to assess and identify barriers to accessibility.
Bloomington's Council for Community Accessibility
The City of Bloomington’s Council for Community Accessibility (CCA) was funded to conduct two trainings in Monroe and surrounding counties for architects, construction personnel, inspectors, and municipal officials who approve plans for new business construction. The goal was for those involved in the process to know their obligations under the ADA so businesses are accessible prior to opening, rather than after the fact, which would necessitate additional expenses.
