Special Initiative Grants

Our interests include (but are not limited to):

  • Education and training for people with disabilities, their families, healthcare professionals and the public in areas such as medical rehabilitation and disability prevention.
  • Community programs and services related to improving the lives of people with disabilities, such as arts, recreation, social services, health, transportation, assistive device acquisition, and home/automotive adaptations.
  • Projects, programs, pilot initiatives, and creative solutions that work toward improving the employment and career advancement of New Jersey citizens with disabilities that are outside of our local community employment grant program guidelines.

Grants are reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year. Final grant selection is at the discretion of Kessler Foundation.
