About the AbilityOne Program

The AbilityOne Program is a Federal initiative to help people who are blind or have other significant disabilities find employment by working within a national network of over 600 Nonprofit Agencies that sell products and services to the U.S. government. The Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled is the Federal agency authorized to administer the AbilityOne Program.

Integrity is our highest priority for the AbilityOne Program

The AbilityOne vision is to enable all people who are blind or living with significant disabilities to achieve their maximum employment potential.  This vision requires leadership committed to integrity.  To support those goals, the Program:

  • promotes open, honest, and transparent business processes.
  • is committed to excellence and superior product and service quality, and,
  • provides stability, longevity, and value in contracting to Federal Government agencies.

In 2008, over 60% of people who are blind or have other significant disabilities did not have jobs. Almost half of the individuals with college degrees remain unemployed.

The Quality Work Environment Initiative was a collaborative effort with the Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled, NIB and SourceAmerica® (formerly NISH). The initiative will enable AbilityOne nonprofit agencies (NPAs) to strengthen their commitment to enhance daily work experiences and develop future growth opportunities for persons who are blind or have other significant disabilities.
