About this funder:



The Able Trust's mission is to be a key leader in providing Floridians with disabilities opportunities for successful employment.

One way our mission is accomplished is through opportunities in the Grant giving program. The goal of The Able Trust grant program is to provide funds to qualifying organizations to provide employment placement programs that assist individuals achieve employment in their communities and in their career fields.

The Able Trust recognizes the great diversity of people across the state of Florida and welcomes proposals to address their employment needs. It is helpful for all organizations interested in a grant from The Able Trust to review a copy of the Grant Policies.

Strategic Employment Grant Initiative

This is the primary grant program of The Able Trust. Proposals that respond to this grant opportunity address the employment placement of Floridians with disabilities.

The Strategic program is an opportunity for applicants to present to The Able Trust a complex three year initiative to prepare and place individuals with disabilities into employment and to develop relationships with employers in their community for that purpose. This program began in 2011 when The Able Trust Board of Directors decided to provide catalytic funding that could generate more career opportunities for individuals with disabilities. The employment emphasis of the grant is on career potential employment outcomes and promotion opportunities for individuals with disabilities, especially those that have received a degree or certification in a particular field to gain a position in that career field of choice. The word “Strategic” has been deliberately chosen as part of the opportunity name because The Able Trust has found that it takes strategic moves by an applicant organization and its own board of directors to implement a successful program. The grant time frame over three years is designed to assist organizations to build capacity and sustainability for the program beyond the grant funding time frame. It is helpful for all grant applicants to review the Able Trust statement on Successful Employment first.

Awards in this category range up to $250,000 and cover a three year grant period.
