The American With Disabilities Act (ADA) Technical Assistance Program

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Technical Assistance Program is a grant offered by the Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division. This grant offers funding to organizations in order to provide technical assistance and educational activities for people with disabilities. It is an educational grant, so it only provides funding for educational materials within the scope of the ADA. Nonprofit organizations and other organizations educating people with disabilities can apply for this grant via the Department of Justice, and funding is usually given within 60 to120 days of the application.

For more information you can go directly to the official ADA website:
