Policy, legislation and its implementation
Ford will contribute to supporting the work of NGOs to ensure that the CRPD is implemented and that the Sustainable Development Goals include people with disabilities.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan: 2018-2019 grantmaking to both disability-specific organizations, as well as mainstream organizations addressing the rights and priorities of people with disabilities.

Representation and empowerment of persons with disabilities
Ford’s grantmaking in the United States will seek to ensure that the voices of people with disabilities directly inform donor priorities through the establishment of a Disability Justice Fund that brings donors and activists together to make grant decisions.

Timeframe and/or implementation plan: Work to develop a collaborative fund will start in late summer through the fall and early 2019 to develop a process, structure and focus of a $2 million fund.
