Apply for a Grant
Eligibility: Any family whose child has been diagnosed with Aicardi Syndrome is eligible to apply. Applicant(s) must meet Financial Eligibility Guidelines and the grant funds must be used for the direct benefit of the affected child. Families whose requests are awarded will be ineligible to reapply for three years. Request Maximum: $2,000
Examples of How Funds Could Be Used: Examples of how families could use these grants include, but are not limited to: purchase of specialized equipment (including wheelchair accessible vehicles), home accessibility modifications, therapeutic services, respite, travel to/from the Aicardi Syndrome Family Conference, etc. When the maximum grant award is unable to completely cover the costs of these items, it may be put toward the family’s out-of-pocket costs after insurance has paid its share, or combined with individual fundraising or other grants to meet the proposed need.
Review Process & Deadline: Applications will be reviewed three times per year. The next deadline is Friday, May 15, 2020.
