Quality of Life Grants: 1st Cycle 2009: Actively Achieving
I Believe, Inc.
This grant will help to fund the production of I Believe TV, a national media resource for all individuals with disabilities to inspire, inform and encourage. I Believe Inc. was created by Richard Gaskin, also known as Professir X, an accomplished rap artist, entertainer and media producer, to enable him to positively motivate people of all ages and spread awareness of disability. I Believe TV is currently broadcast from Montclair, New Jersey over a network of Public, Education & Government (PEG) stations three times daily, potentially reaching 875,000 homes. The PEG shared server is also shared nationally through the Alliance of Community Media. Grant funds will help to underwrite the purchase of programmatic equipment for I Believe TV. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000338).
