Accommodations Fund

The Accommodations Fund was created to provide ample accommodations in efforts to make our programs more accessible.  This is meant to provide supplemental funding on a reimbursement bases for accommodation needs of ONI programs and ONI partner organizations (not citywide), during the fiscal year 2017-18, mainly to access ONI services or events.

There is a total of $100,000 to be used over the year, with $25,000 available per quarter on a first come first served basis. This is not meant to fulfill all accommodation expenses.  Workplace accommodations, capital improvement projects, or personal accommodations are not eligible to use this fund.  Submitting a request does not guarantee funding. 

Please submit all requests by May 15, 2018.  We will be accepting requests for accommodations as of July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018. 

For additional questions email or call 503-823-6033.
