ACL’s National Paralysis Resource Center will open a new application cycle for the Direct Effect Quality of Life grants (up to $25,000) and the Expanded Effect Quality of Life (up to $100,000) grants on February 3, 2020. Applications are due March 16.
Quality of Life (QOL) grants are federally funded through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Administration for Community Living (ACL), and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. This program recognizes projects and initiatives that foster community engagement, inclusion and involvement, while promoting health and wellness for individuals living with paralysis and their support networks.
The Direct Effect QOL grants offer up to $25,000 to nonprofit organizations for projects that address the needs of individuals living with paralysis, their families, and caregivers. The grant may fund a wide range of projects such as, adaptive sports, fitness and wellness, educational opportunities, and more.
