Deadline: 16 March 2020
Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is seeking applications for Quality Life Grant Program to support the wide range of projects and activities that will clearly impact individuals living with paralysis and their families.
The Quality of Life Grants Program recognizes projects and initiatives that foster community engagement, inclusion and involvement, while promoting health and wellness for individuals living with paralysis and their families.
15 Extraordinary Opportunities are open for New NGOs
Actively Achieving: These projects provide individuals with disabilities opportunities to participate in activities that engage their bodies and minds.
Bridging Barriers: These projects address and offer solutions to barriers for independent living across the disability community.
Caring and Coping: Caring and Coping projects provide services that address the complex day-to-day health and personal issues for individuals living with disabilities, their families and caregivers.
The maximum grant amount of $25,000 has not been increased since the inception of the program, while costs of living have steadily risen.

Improving access in public and residential spaces
Providing education, independent living skills, and job training
