The supports organizations that respect and promote the independence and individual choice of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
To that end, the foundation awards grants to organizations or programs that provide housing, jobs, and early intervention services for people with physical and sensory disabilities in the most integrated setting appropriate to meet their individual needs. Priority is given to community-based direct-service providers in Maryland, greater Chicago, northeastern Pennsylvania, Hawaii, and Israel. Applicants outside those priority areas will be given consideration for ongoing, innovative programs that can be replicated.
Letters of Intent are accepted on a rolling basis. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
