Access for All Abilities (AAA) Mini-Grant Opportunities

The Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities at Rhode Island College is soliciting applications from organizations and businesses offering social, leisure, recreational and cultural activities in Rhode Island for “Access for All Abilities” (AAA) mini-grants.

The Sherlock Center will award up to four grants in 2013. Organizations may apply for a grant of up to $2,500.

The grant program’s purpose is to increase access for people with disabilities to existing activities in the community, promote participation alongside people without disabilities and to support efforts of Rhode Island businesses and organizations to include more people with disabilities.

AAA grant applicants must offer social, leisure, recreational or cultural activities to the general public in Rhode Island. Nonprofit organizations, businesses and city and town government agencies are encouraged to apply.

For more information, or to obtain an online application, visit www.sherlockcenter.org, or call (401) 456-8072. The deadline for applications is April 15.

The mission of the Paul V. Sherlock Center on Disabilities is to promote membership of individuals with disabilities in school, work and community. The Sherlock Center, Rhode Island’s University Center for Excellence, receives funding for this initiative through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration on Developmental Disabilities.
