Autism Alliance of NENY is excited to be offering another open grant period from 9/15/19-10/15/19. We have taken some time to review and update our grant policies and procedures and have updated each of the applications. Each grant type will now be offered three times a year! We serve Clinton, Essex and Franklin counties and we offer five types of grants as follows:
To be used for technology to assist individuals with ASD to increase functional skills like communication, visual schedules/organizers, time management, etc.
Up to $300 for goods/services to support ASD individual’s need for social interactions, sensory equipment, adaptive devices, etc.
Up to $1000 for full time and $500 for part-time students; see specific requirements listed on the application
Up to $1000 for organizations to support/serve ASD individuals via the purchase of curriculum, sensory equipment, technology, materials for social groups, etc.
For organizations, sole proprietors that support/serve ASD adults to target socialization, recreation and/or life skills through classes and opportunities to network with peers
Some changes that we have made include the requirement of proof of diagnosis and proof of income as well as more stringent guidelines regarding clinical recommendations. We, also, will no longer award grants for prior purchases. Applicants should be aware that incomplete applications may be denied. All grants awarded must work toward furthering our mission to empower individuals and families touched by autism spectrum disorders through support and education.
All applications must be mailed and postmarked no later than 10/15/19. Late applications will not be considered but will be kept for consideration at the next open period, which will be 1/15/20-2/15/20. Questions regarding any grant or scholarship may be emailed to our Grant Committee at email@example.com.
