Solutions for Government
National Industries for the Blind offers an extensive range of products and services, delivered by a highly skilled yet largely untapped workforce of people who are blind.
NIB participates in the federal AbilityOne Program as an
Authorized AbilityOne Enterprise. Established by the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act,
the AbilityOne Program coordinates its activities with nearly 600 nonprofit
organizations across the country to help more than 46,000 people who are blind
or have significant disabilities find employment providing goods and services
to the federal government at fair market prices.
The AbilityOne Program is administered by the Committee for Purchase from People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled (operating as the U.S. AbilityOne Commission), an independent federal agency.
