The AbilityOne Program is one of the largest providers of employment in the United States for those who are blind or have significant disabilities. More than 40,000 individuals and 2,500 veterans serve each day at 440 nonprofit organizations nationwide. These motivated Americans serve their county by providing quality products and services to the Federal Government at a fair market price.

The Program is administered by the U.S. AbilityOne Commission, an independent Federal agency, with assistance from National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and SourceAmerica®.

Nearly $4 billion of AbilityOne products and services were procured by the federal government in 2023, including Remanufactured Toner Cartridges.
