DFN Rapid Response Fund Update

The DFN Rapid Response Fund provides mini-grants of up to $5,000 to nonprofit organizations serving people with disabilities whose lives have been disrupted by Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma.  To date, the fund has raised $130,000 from contributions by DFN members and has committed over $100,000 to 24 organizations.

The Katrina page on our Web site (www.disabilityfunders.org/katrina) details our teleconference, media work and other hurricane-related activities.  All of these have expanded a long-term DFN project, Emergency Preparedness for People with Disabilities and Older Adults: What Grantmakers Need to Know, which develops educational materials for grantmakers on disability, aging and emergency preparedness and provides opportunities for related discussion.  For information on this project, see www.disabilityfunders.org/epdr.html.

Foundation News & Commentary Publishes DFN Article on Impact of Gulf and Atlantic Hurricanes

DFN was invited by the editor of Foundation News & Commentary (FN&C), one of the top journals of the foundation world, to write an article on the impact of the Gulf and Atlantic Hurricanes on people with disabilities and older adults and suggest how grantmakers can respond.  The article, “Hardest Hit and Least Protected,” appears in a special section titled “Foundation Response to Hurricane Katrina” of FN&C’s November-December 2005 issue.  See www.foundationnews.org/CME/article.cfm?ID=3489 for a copy of the article.

  DFN Launches Partnership with The Foundation Center

FISA Foundation Seeking Funding Partners for Project to Provide Access to Healthcare for Women with Disabilities

Twenty-seven million women with disabilities in the United states continue to face enormous barriers to even the most basic healthcare services.  For example, many doctors’ offices do not have an accessible entrance; if a woman cannot stand, she often cannot get a quality mammogram; if she cannot “hop up” onto an exam table she may not be able to get a gynecological exam or a pap smear.  Often, women with disabilities are perceived to be asexual and thus are not provided with basic information about sexually transmitted diseases, contraception, domestic violence or preventive health care.

On Dec. 6, 2004, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held the first women and disabilities summit, “Breaking Down the Barriers to Health Care for Women with Disabilities.” Education was declared to be a critical next step toward improving care for this diverse underserved population. On July 26, 2006, U.S. Surgeon General Richard H. Carmona, M.D., M.P.H., released “The Surgeon General’s Call to Action to Improve the Health and Wellness of Persons with Disabilities,” asking for support to better the lives of people with disabilities through improved health care and understanding.

In response, in October 2005 FISA Foundation (Pittsburgh, PA) approved a grant of $100,000 over two years to the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) supporting the development of interactive training curricula to reduce the gaps in healthcare for women with disabilities. A panel of internationally recognized experts will design two computer-based training modules. The first will provide healthcare professionals and health educators with the knowledge and skills they need to provide optimal care to women with disabilities in a sensitive manner. The second will teach women with disabilities to communicate more effectively with health care providers and be active advocates for their own care.

The curriculum for healthcare professionals will be pilot-tested at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (University of Pittsburgh Medical School) and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (Harvard Medical School). The patient curriculum will be piloted at the Healthcare Center for Women with Disabilities, Magee-Women’s Hospital, Pittsburgh, PA, and the Health Resource Center for Women with Disabilities, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

This three-year project will cost $750,000 to develop and be implemented nationally. Additional funding partners are actively being sought. Please contact Dee Delaney, executive director of FISA Foundation at 412-456-5550 or dee@fisafoundation.org for more information.

Kessler Foundation Trustees Approve $7.5 Million in Grants

The board of trustees of the Henry H. Kessler Foundation approved a grant allocation of $6.1 million to benefit people with physical disabilities through expanded rehabilitation research, employment and education programs. Earlier this year, the foundation awarded $1.4 million in grants to benefit a new strategic emphasis on employment. The current $6.1 million allocation is the largest in the foundation’s history.

The new employment and education grants were awarded to organizations that work toward improving employment and career advancement of people with disabilities.  Nearly $5.7 million funded ongoing rehabilitation research at Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Corporation (KMRREC) in West Orange, New Jersey. KMRREC, a subsidiary of the foundation, investigates new rehabilitation techniques for people with physical disabilities, including programs to benefit people who have had spinal cord or traumatic brain injury, multiple sclerosis or other neuromuscular conditions.  Other grantees include the National Center for Disability Services (Albertson, NY), Cornell University, Northeast ADA & IT Center (Ithaca, NY), Employment Horizons (Cedar Knoll, NJ) and Tri-County Action Partnership (Bridgeton, NJ). For more information and a full list of grantees, go to www.hhkfdn.org/.

Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA Wins 2005 Eagle Award

Rayna Aylward, executive director of the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF), accepted the 2005 Eagle Award from Disability Rights Advocates (DRA) on behalf of Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA, parent organization of MEAF.  Each year DRA — a California-based, national disability law center — acknowledges organizations that make significant contributions to the advancement of people with disabilities within society.  Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA was recognized for the many ways its companies create positive change for young people with disabilities. The corporate focus is on helping young people prepare for meaningful careers by offering internships, job shadowing and mentoring opportunities.  Mitsubishi Electric employees also play an active role in developing community-based projects to assist young people with disabilities in their local communities by providing respite care for the parents of chronically ill children and raising funds for assistive technology in school classrooms. The company foundation is dedicated to helping young people with disabilities lead full and productive lives.

Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation Announces 2006 Grants

The Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation (MEAF) recently approved a total of $528,000 in new and renewal grants for six national projects that serve young people with disabilities. This new round of grants reflects a continued commitment to MEAF’s Inclusive Initiative begun two years ago.  The initiative focuses on helping mainstream organizations such as Boys and Girls Clubs of America make their programs more accommodating of and attractive to disabled youth, while working to change attitudes among people without disabilities.  MEAF also donated sixteen 52-inch high-definition televisions to hurricane-ravaged schools that serve children with disabilities along the Gulf Coast. The schools will use the high-definition televisions to support programs for special education students — a significant enhancement to newly reopened classrooms.  For more information about MEAF, go to www.meaf.org/.

San Francisco Foundation’s John Kilacky Delivers Keynote Address to Kennedy Center’s Leadership Exchange in Arts and Disability

John R. Kilacky, program officer for arts and culture at The San Francisco Foundation, gave the keynote address at the Kennedy Center’s Leadership Exchange in Arts and Disability Training and Conference in Scottsdale, AZ, on Oct. 1, 2005.  Kilacky addressed accessibility issues in the arts as encompassing more than ramps, seating, listening devices, large print programs and sign language interpreters.  Accessibility has to be “at the heart of every organization,” he said.  It must also encompass how the creative works of marginalized communities are presented and received, and the inclusion of disability arts and culture worldwide. Kilacky, a filmmaker and performing arts professional who now has a mobility impairment caused by a tumor inside his spinal cord, also challenged the audience of artists and arts and disability experts not to refrain from offering constructive criticism to disabled artists out of fear of being “indelicate.”  “If we are going to stop being objectified,” he said, “we need to control our own images, take ourselves more seriously as artists, and challenge and support each other to make better work. The remarkable thing is NOT that people with disabilities are on stage or in galleries; we also must be judged on aesthetic terms as to how we draw, act, dance, play music and make films.  Otherwise artists with disabilities remain a carny freak sideshow.” To read the entire address, go to www.sff.org/about/documents/Disability_Keynote.pdf.

  National Spinal Cord Injury Association Receives $500,000 for Hurricane Relief for People with Spinal Cord Injury

Robert Klein, chief executive officer of Safeguard Properties, Inc., and his wife donated $500,000 to the National Spinal Cord Injury Association (NSCIA) for the relief of people with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities who survived the ravages of Hurricane Katrina and other recent hurricanes.

The fund is named in honor of Brian McCloskey, the late son of Joseph McCloskey, a close personal friend of Mr. Klein.  The fund will provide direct assistance with cash to rebuild homes and replace durable medical equipment not covered by private insurers, home furnishings, items not replaced by FEMA or other sources, vehicles with wheelchair lifts and/or hand-controls, and to support advocacy to create disability-specific funding that addresses the additional needs of hurricane survivors with disabilities and maximizes public policy initiatives.  For more information, go to www.spinalcord.org/.

  National Organization on Disability Releases Latest Statistics on Disability Preparedness from Harris Poll

A recently released Harris Interactive survey commissioned by the National Organization on Disability’s (NOD) Emergency Preparedness Initiative (EPI) reports a marked decrease in workplace preparedness for people with disabilities.  The survey found that 57 percent of people with disabilities report having a workplace plan — down from 68 percent in 2003.  However, personal preparedness is on the rise. Nearly 54 percent of people with disabilities know emergency planning contacts in their communities — up from 44 percent in 2003. In addition, 47 percent of people wiith disabilities have plans to evacuate their homes safely, a significant increase from the 2003 survey result of 39 percent.  The complete survey and its findings are posted on the EPI Web site at www.nod.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=Page.viewPage&pageId=11.

 [From a Justice-For-All e-mail news alert, Nov. 19, 2005]

National Council on Disability Releases Recommendations on Improving Employment Opportunities for People with Disabilities Who Receive Social Security Benefits

The National Council on Disability (NCD) released its report, “The Social Security Administration’s Efforts to Promote Employment for People with Disabilities— New Solutions for Old Problems” on Nov. 30, 2005.  According to NCD Chair, Lex Frieden, “Although the Social Security Administration (SSA) has instituted a number of incentives to reduce the many obstacles to employment faced by its Supplemental Security Income and Social Security Disability Insurance beneficiaries, such efforts have had little impact because few beneficiaries are aware of these incentives and how they affect benefits and access to health care.” The report calls on Congress and SSA to make immediate changes to get more people with disabilities who receive Social Security benefits back to gainful employment. The report is available at www.ncd.gov/newsroom/publications/2005/ssa-promoteemployment.htm.

NCD Issues Annual Progress Report

Each year, NCD submits to the president and Congress a status report summarizing major developments affecting the lives of people with disabilities in the preceding year and highlighting issues likely to emerge in the year to come.  The most recent NCD Progress Report, issued in November 2005, covers the period from December 2003 through December 2004.  Key topics include issues of concern to all people with disabilities (such as housing, health care, transportation, technology and homeland security) and issues of concern to people at every stage of the life cycle (from education and youth to employment and long-term services). These reports are excellent tools for funders, as they provide in-depth context for the issues addressed in most grantmaking programs. The report may be read at www.ncd.gov/newsroom/publications/2005/progress_report.htm.

State Special Education Outcomes: Steps Forward in a Decade of Change

A new report from National Center on Educational Outcomes (NCEO) summarizes the organization’s 10th survey of state directors of special education. The report offers a snapshot of new initiatives, trends, accomplishments and emerging issues as states document the academic achievement of students with disabilities during standards-based reform. For the first time in the 14 years it has been collecting data, NCEO reports that the number of students with disabilities achieving proficiency on state accountability tests is increasing. Most states now have at least three years of trend data and enough evaluation data to be able to attribute increased proficiency to several positive efforts by schools and districts. All states report documenting use of accommodations on test days. Updates on alternate assessments show continued evolution in various aspects — from the approach itself, to the content, setting of standards, and the scoring criteria. Forty-five states offer an alternate assessment based on alternate achievement standards. For a copy, go to   http://education.umn.edu/nceo/OnlinePubs/2005StateReport.htm.

New Disability Rights Web Site

A new Web site has been launched to promote the disability rights movement.  The site was created by Mark Johnson of Let’s Get Together (LGT) and dedicated to disability rights pioneers.  LGT was the fiscal sponsor for ADAPT of Atlanta, Concrete Change, Life Worthy of Life (a predecessor to Not Dead Yet) and the first consumer-controlled Independent Living  Center in Georgia. Although LGT no longer exists, ADAPT, Concrete Change and other LGT initiatives do. To access the site, which contains a listing for DFN, go to www.lgtinc.org.

Cross-Government Agency Initiative Provides One-Stop Shopping Web Site

Two E-Zines Publish Issues Featuring International Disability
