Federally Funded Grants from the U.S. Department of Educationthumb-grants

The Educational Technology, Media, and Materials for Individuals with Disabilities Program (CFDA 84.327) provides millions of dollars in grants and awards each year. Grants are provided to support research and development of universal design technologies; funding is also available to support media-related activities, such as video description and captioning, for use in classrooms. 

Private Foundations, Corporations, and Individuals
