Proposals Solicited for White Paper

We are looking for assistive technology funding experts interested in writing a commissioned white paper aimed at understanding whether and how current AT funding programs can support GPII-based AT, including information about the relevant laws, regulations, and typical business methods.

The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is a project of Raising the Floor International and the Trace Center. The GPII will extend accessibility to more people with disabilities in more situations by supporting features and functions built directly into the internet. The GPII vision is that each computing or communication device will be able to instantly change to fit users as they encounter the device, rather than requiring users to figure out how to install, adapt, or configure access features they need. For AT and mainstream technology companies, GPII will introduce a system of shared components and services to reduce cost, increase interoperability, and foster innovation.

Those interested in submitting a proposal should email AT_funding@raisingthefloor.org to receive a copy of the RFP.
