Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to nonprofits and schools working to provide disabled children and youth (under age 21) with health and rehabilitation programs and active play opportunities alongside their non-disabled peers.
These grants focus on:
Health and Rehabilitation Services
In support of programs that promote independence among children with disabilities including physical and occupational therapies, speech and hearing therapies, assistive technology and recreational therapies.
Enabling and Encouraging Physical Movement and Play
Essential to healthy development, play of all kinds — physical, cognitive, emotional and social — offers a means of understanding the world. Proposed programs may include either physical activities or play opportunities for children and should address the specific needs of the population served.
Deadline: October 31.
