The Kelly Brush Foundation Individual Grant Program awards grants to individuals with paralysis due to a spinal cord injury (SCI). The purpose of the individual grant program is to increase participation in adaptive sports and recreation activities and improve the quality of life for individuals living with SCI. The individual grant program allows economically disadvantaged individuals with SCI to purchase adaptive sporting equipment such as a mono-ski or a hand-cycle. In order for an individual to qualify for the grant, he or she must be living in the United States and must supply the foundation with information about their spinal cord injury, details on their source of income, and a description of the type of equipment they are seeking.
The grant cycle is once annually in the fall. The deadline for submitting applications for the 2015 grant cycle is September 30, 2015. Grants will be reviewed after that date and announcements of all grant awards will be made in late October/early November. http://www.kellybrushfoundation.org Florida Spinal Cord Injury Resource Center: http://www.fscirc.com
