JAA Wins Grants & Makes Grants

The Jewish Abilities Alliance (JAA) is the proud recipient of a $15,000 grant from the Holly Lane Foundation. The funding will support JAA’s work to amplify inclusion for people with disabilities and will prioritize the implementation of recommendations from its recent Matan Community Study. The study was conducted in 2020 and included extensive fact-finding from caregivers, self-advocates, and other community disability leaders.  

Annie Garrett, JAA Manager said, “We’re working to align the community with a shared and singular vision of disability inclusion. Part of our work is supporting local inclusion efforts through microgrants. In a conventional year, we award about $15,000 in microgrants, but because of the pandemic we rolled funding over and were able to grant out more than $19,000 to advance inclusion in 2021.”
