Description

The U.S. AbilityOne Commission administers the AbilityOne Program a unique employment program sponsored by the Federal Government serving the needs of people who are blind or have other significant disabilities. The Commission administers the program through two Central Nonprofit Agencies (CNAs), National Industries for the Blind (NIB), and SourceAmericaTM (formerly NISH). In turn, the CNAs match government contracts with local nonprofit agencies (NPAs) across the country that employ people who are blind or have other significant disabilities. The ultimate aim of the program is to eliminate the unacceptably high unemployment for these Americans. Currently, the AbilityOne Program employs nearly 50,000 people with significant disabilities, including 3,000 veterans.
