Announcing 2015 Grant Cycle

The Disability Communications Fund (DCF) is pleased to accept Letters of Intent (LOI) for consideration for support through its 2015 Grant Program. Disability Communications grants are awarded on an annual basis, with funding starting in late-January 2015 in this upcoming grant cycle.

Disability Communications Fund (DCF) is the grantmaking operation within the California Communications Access Foundation.

DCF will award grants to community-based nonprofit or educational organizations in California which establish projects and programs designed to improve existing services or technology or encourage new services or technology that will make spoken, written or signed communication easier for people with disabilities of all ages. The services or technology must assist people with disabilities or seniors to communicate, and can be “high tech” or “low tech,” or anything in between.

Grant amounts are anticipated to range from $10,000 to $100,000, with approximately $1 million available for competitive grants awarded for the 2015 grant cycle.

Please refer to the LOI Guidelines and FAQs on DCF’s website<http://www.dcfund.us/> to confirm that your proposed project fits within DCF’s funding priorities.

DCF is using an online service to receive the LOIs, the Foundant Grant Cycle Manager. To complete the LOI process, please visit our online application system<https://www.grantinterface.com/Common/LogOn.aspx?eqs=fiaADTHDZeY70GHES9TUMg2> and create an applicant account for your organization.

LOIs are due on October 20, 2014.  A limited number of applicants will be invited to submit a Full Application. Applicants will be notified by November 7, 2014 whether or not their LOI has been selected for the submission of a full proposal
