Kessler Foundation Invites Applications for Traditional Community Employment Grant

The Kessler Foundation is a public charity dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals with disabilities.

The foundation is accepting applications for its Traditional Community Employment Grants program, which supports solutions focused on increasing employment and career opportunities for individuals with disabilities in New Jersey. Priority areas of interest include transition-to-work for youth and adults, employment-related transportation issues, vocational training, workplace preparation, and strategies that support the recruitment, hiring, placement, and retention of youth and adults with disabilities.

Any organization that serves New Jersey residents and is recognized as a tax-exempt entity under the Internal Revenue Code may apply for funding. This includes nonprofit agencies, public or private schools, and public institutions such as universities and governmental entities. Preference will be given to organizations employing a large number of staff members self-identifying as having a disability.

Grant amounts will range between $25,000 and $40,000, and organizations may apply for indirect cost expenses of up to 8 percent in their project budgets. There is no matching grant requirement.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Kessler Foundation website.
