About Us

The AbilityOne Program

For more than 80 years, the AbilityOne® Program has been the preferred source, and SKILCRAFT® the brand of choice, for federal purchasers. Our online catalog offers great selection with more than 4,000 high-quality, competitively priced SKILCRAFT and other products made by a talented workforce of people who are blind or have significant disabilities.

The AbilityOne Program not only offers a wide variety of products and services federal customers need – including office supplies, cleaning and janitorial products, and food service supplies – it is also committed to providing green products that are good for our environment.

AbilityOne authorized enterprises National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and SourceAmerica serve as central nonprofit agencies to administer the program and distribute orders among associated nonprofit agencies that are AbilityOne authorized providers.

The AbilityOne Program is an example of government at its best. People who are blind or have significant disabilities receive training and are employed in the provision of products and services for the federal government and military. Nonprofit agencies operating as AbilityOne authorized providers produce quality products and services for the federal government while providing meaningful employment for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities.

Exceptional Quality. Extraordinary Impact.

As a federal employee, when you purchase SKILCRAFT and other products and services provided through the AbilityOne Program, you get the high-quality products and services you need to carry out your mission, help provide employment for people who are blind or have significant disabilities, protect the environment, and help your agency meet the mandatory source provision of the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act.
