March 28, 2017 § 2 Comments

CCAC offers three sorts of GRANTS to eligible associations and individuals for inclusion of LIVE EVENT CAPTIONING. And the newest thank you from a recipient makes our day! See below.

All grant recipients are very grateful. It always helps to ensure an event is inclusive and accessible, and at the same time, it educates and raises awareness that live captioning exists! You can ask for it. You can see what others can hear clearly.

The newest grant recipient is a worthy organization in Canada. Information on this webpage – http://ccacaptioning.org/ccac-sponsorship-for-cart-a-new-captioning-advocacy-program/

And their thank you is delightful – we thank them for using live captioning!

From the organization-

Thank you again for all your help and your grant towards making events around the world more accessible! …for your assistance with this and for CCAC’s great work! CCAC’s grant program makes a significant difference to the attendees of all the events you support, and is changing the accessibility landscape for the better with every event that you contribute to!

With much appreciation. 

Happiness!

    Does the Library of Congress National Book Festival qualify for captioning assistance? I’ve been trying to get the LOC to budget for open captioning of authors’ presentations, but LOC has failed to respond. The next event is in September 2017. https://blogs.loc.gov/national-book-festival/2016/12/support-the-2017-book-festival/#respond

      If you read the guidelines and information on the CCAC webpage for the grants, federal agencies are not eligible.
      The LOC surely knows about the ADA. Are you a member of the CCAC? We invite you to join and discuss the situation with others in our community online. In brief, it’s important to keep asking until you get a reply and open a conversation with someone there. Send us an email with your name and more information if you like.
