The Grant Program
For kids with special needs, the path to getting active isn’t always as simple as joining the local sports team or signing up for lessons around the corner. Our Grant Program provides funding to support ongoing physical activity opportunities for children with special needs. Grants improve community access and help to remove some of the barriers preventing children from living active lives.
We are currently accepting applications from organizations providing physical activity programs for children with intellectual disabilities and/or autism.
