Government Products Powered by AbilityOne

In 1973, the United States Congress passed what was then called the Javits Wagner O’Day Act, currently known as the AbilityOne Program. This program allows federal government agencies the opportunity to set aside contract opportunities to employ people with vocational disabilities to produce goods and serve vocationally.
