The ABLE National Resource Center (ABLE NRC) is committed to improving the financial stability and prosperity of people from the Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) community who experience additional and significant expenses associated with having a disability.
This toolkit is intended for agencies, organizations and community groups to build awareness about ABLE accounts. It was designed in partnership with our ABLE NRC BIPOC Ambassadors to showcase and provide guidance on how 529(A) ABLE savings and investment accounts can benefit eligible members of minority populations while helping them maintain eligibility for critical public benefits.

Thank you to our ABLE BIPOC Outreach Ambassadors!
The ABLE NRC focused our efforts in 2021 on increasing outreach to the Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) community. For this year’s ABLE Ambassador program, we pulled from existing alumni and also brought on new Ambassadors, who are all BIPOC ABLE account owners and family members. They have been working within their own networks and with the ABLE NRC to build awareness around ABLE accounts among minority populations who experience higher rates of poverty at the intersection of race and disability. We are grateful for their contributions as their efforts will support ongoing engagement with the BIPOC community for years to come.
