AbilityOne enjoys a long history of supporting the federal government. In 1938, Congress created the Wagner-O’Day Act, which enabled nonprofits that served people who were blind to sell products to the Federal Government. The Act was amended in 1971 to include people with other significant disabilities. This expanded Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Act serves as the basis for the Federal AbilityOne Program.
The AbilityOne Program is among the nation’s largest providers of jobs for people who are blind or have significant disabilities. The Program uses the purchasing power of the Federal Government to buy products and services from participating nonprofit agencies that train and employ workers with disabilities.
