Disabled individuals get government grants

It can be hard for disabled people to get by in modern day society. Let’s face it, times are tough and it’s hard enough for a fully able, educated, qualified individual to find employment. Being disabled would limit you from all physical jobs: Construction, food server, flight attendant, fireman, police officer etc. But, there are obviously other struggles other than just financial. It’s hard to get around, and you are limited to certain restaurants, hotels, cars, offices etc. Oftentimes, people look down on the disabled which would make it difficult to succeed in any aspect of life.
So taking all of this in account in addition to other factors, the government has programs set up for the disabled to provide them with government grants. But, what exactly does it mean to be disabled? A person who is disabled is a person who:
• Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities;
• Has a record of such an impairment; or
• Is regarded as having such an impairment.
America has been aware of the disadvantages of disabilities for quite some time. First, the government created the “Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990”. This prohibits discrimination in the workplace and protects the disabled. So, as of 1990 it is illegal to let disability affect application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.
Even still, this does not address the fact that it is physically impossible for the disabled to do certain physical jobs therefore drastically limiting their pool of job choices. So, that’s when the government deemed it necessary to give out free government grant money in the form of a government grant for disabled persons.
The government offers free government grants for the disabled in the form of free money. The money can be spent on wheelchairs, other accessories to help with the individual’s impairment, or the money can be spent in supplementation to their income, or used as the primary source of income. The government gives free money to these people to help better their lives and their situation.
You may have heard that grants are hard to get or you may just have no idea to go about applying for a grant. While I was doing my research, I came across a website that will be a great tool if you are considering applying for a government grant, specifically a grant for disability to get free government money. You can find out a lot more information on how, by going to this website, http://www.grantgenerator.com. My heart truly goes out to the disabled and the challenges in life they face. I hope you will share this website with any disabled persons who may need extra assistance.
