A total of $100,000 in grants is available to Minnesota state agencies seeking the means to enhance their website postings, videos and more to ensure that content is fully accessible for all users.
The Legislative Coordinating Commission (LCC) is offering “Web Site Accessibility Grants” to help agencies implement the state’s accessibility standard. The grants will be awarded for use during the FY 2012-2013 biennium.
The grants were made possible through the LCC’s appropriations from the Telecommunications Access Minnesota Fund. Agencies can apply for projects costing from $1,000-$5,000, or agencies may collaborate on proposals requesting up to $10,000.
