AbleGamers Charity's 2013 Summer of Fun submissions open, grants assistive technology for disabled gamers

AbleGamers Charity's 2013 Summer of Fun program, which grants "assistive technology" for disabled gamers, is now taking submissions, the organization announced today.

Those interested in a "one time grant for gaming equipment" can apply for the grant on the program's official website. Funding for this summer's program has been made possible by Tumblewords and Laika Believes: The Sun at Night (pictured above) developer Minicore Studios.

"Giving these grants is the most wonderful part of what we do," said Steve Spohn, AbleGamers' editor in chief and outreach chair. "With over 60 million gamers with disabilities, we have a lot of giving to do. And this year we're going to give more equipment than ever before thanks to our industry partners."

Over the last several months, AbleGamers has published a manual called Includificaton to help developers design for disabled gamers and opened an arcade for the disabled in Washington, D.C. called Accessibility Arcade.
