County Offering Grant Program For Disability Programs

The Palm Beach County Office of Equal Opportunity is seeking proposals from qualified agencies to improve accessibility and equal opportunity, and promote or increase awareness of the rights and ambitions of people with disabilities through an awareness program.

The Handicap Accessibility and Awareness Grant Program will improve accessibility and increase awareness for the approximately 99,000 disabled people living in Palm Beach County, and $30,000 is proposed to be slated for funding.

The grant program will enable any nonprofit agency within Palm Beach County that provides service to persons with disabilities to apply for funding to improve accessibility and equal opportunity and/or increase public awareness for those with disabilities.

The proposals will be reviewed through the Palm Beach County Office of Equal Opportunity and must meet program, application and grant criteria. The deadline for submission is July 11 by 5 p.m.

To obtain the application and more information, visit or contact Pamela Guerrier at (561) 355-4884 or
