The Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Program creates jobs and training opportunities for people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities. Its primary means of doing so is by requiring Government agencies to purchase selected products and services from nonprofit agencies employing such individuals. As a result, JWOD employees are able to lead more productive and independent lives.

Named for its enabling legislation, the Javits-Wagner-O'Day Act of 1971, 41 U.S.C. 46-48c, the JWOD Program is a mandatory source of supply for Federal employees. The JWOD Program is administered by the Committee for Purchase From People Who Are Blind or Severely Disabled. Two national, independent organizations, National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and NISH help State and private nonprofit agencies participate in the JWOD Program.

While promoting a desirable social end, the JWOD Program represents good business. Benefits of the JWOD Program to the Federal Government and to the taxpayer include:
  • High quality supplies and services
  • On-time delivery
  • Reasonable prices
  • Reduction of paperwork and pre/post award costs
  • Central points of contact to solve problems/facilitate action
  • Reduced disability payments and increased tax revenues
To many, the JWOD Program is an example of Government operating at its best. While the purpose of the Program is--first and foremost--to provide jobs and training for persons with severe disabilities, it does not represent a handout. Nonprofit agencies employing persons who are blind or have other severe disabilities must demonstrate that they can offer the Government quality supplies and services at reasonable prices.

JWOD contract provides nonprofit agency employees with invaluable vocational opportunities not otherwise available, which result in additional income and increased independence. Two tremendous advantages realized are a stable and enabling work experience and the attainment of marketable job skills.

Through expanding their scope of experience and enhancing their abilities, some employees are able to tackle new assignments at increasingly higher levels of difficulty. This experience prepares them for a wider variety of jobs either within or outside of the nonprofit agency.
