Become an NIB Associated Agency

More than 600 community-based nonprofit agencies across the country participate in the AbilityOne Program, helping to generate more than 45,000 jobs for Americans who are blind or have significant disabilities.

At least 75 percent of an agency's total direct labor hours must be performed by people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities. The work on federal contracts may be facility-based, such as our multi-million dollar contract to manufacture the U.S. Army Battle Dress Uniform, or community-based, such as our call center service contract with the Environmental Protection Agency that was established to assist consumers with questions about the harmful effects of lead.

To participate in the AbilityOne Program, nonprofit agencies must associate with either NIB or SourceAmerica.

If you have any questions or would like to become an NIB Associated Agency, contact Harlan Erker at 703-310-0633 or
