The federal government provides a limited number of grants to individuals who suffer from disabilities, including education grants and small business opportunities according to Disabilities.gov. However, the government provides support through welfare programs, education assistance, FHA loans and disaster relief grants, Benefits.gov reports.
Individuals with disabilities from specific demographic groups such as children with disabilities may claim assistance from government programs such as the Disabled Children's Relief Fund, according to Grantspace. The U.S. Government also offers education aid to disabled students by funding the cost of books, tuition and other ancillary costs through grants such as Federal Pell Grants, Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grants and the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant for deserving undergraduate students, according to the office of FederalStudentAid, a program run by the U.S. Department of Education. Special focus groups such as American Indian children receive aid through special education programs through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, according to Benefits.gov
