We recognize that many of us in the North Country are facing significant challenges, struggling with financial insecurity and trying to educate our special needs children during the school closure. Autism Alliance is pleased to be offering a grant to support families who are struggling with distance learning due to lack of needed supplies, equipment, and/or resources.
We will provide funding for school-related goods only; this may include materials needed for educating your child, and/or supporting sensory, fine motor, gross motor, or speech needs. Please read the guidelines closely to see if your family qualifies. Please be aware, funds are limited. We ask that you practice a sense of community by asking for only what you need, so that we may serve as many as possible.
Autism Alliance of Northeastern NY offers scholarship grants throughout the year. Please read the guidelines carefully before applying. We typically offer Technology Grants, Individual Grants, Agency Grants, and Community Grants three times each year. We were scheduled to accept grant applications for these four grants in May/June. However, due to the COVID19 crisis and the postponement of the Autism Awareness Walk, we are unsure when we will offer these grants. Please check back again.
