Grants of up to $15,000 to Texas nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, faith-based institutions, schools, and businesses to increase participation in community activities for people with disabilities. Funding is intended for projects that remove barriers to participation and improve access to employment, education, and social opportunities.
Through these grants, organizations will create opportunities and address barriers so people with disabilities can experience full community inclusion.
To foster increased community inclusion, projects may replicate an existing best practice or develop a unique and innovative idea.
Projects will identify and address barriers to full community inclusion faced by people with disabilities in their community. Full community inclusion is defined as participating in education, employment, and social activities in the community alongside both people with and without disabilities. Ultimately, the goal of Community Inclusion Mini-Grants is to produce short- and/or long-term systems change.
To address the barrier, projects may either replicate best practices or develop unique and innovative ideas. At the conclusion of the project, grantees will be able to clearly demonstrate how the barrier was addressed and how community inclusion has improved.
Below are examples of projects that could improve community inclusion.
The above list is not exhaustive and there may be other project activities to consider. Projects should have an impact beyond the duration of grant funding, both by the direct impact they’ve had at the local level and through potential replication by other communities and/or implementation by larger organizations. Preference will be given to new and innovative project ideas.
