Applicant Eligibility:

Be a graduate of Craig Hospital with a spinal cord injury.

Reside in the United States.


Please Note: We do not reimburse for equipment already purchased. We will only disburse grant funding directly to vendors.

Equipment Eligibility:

Adaptive sports equipment, including handcycles, sport chairs, monoskis, etc.

We do not accept applications for propulsion aids (such as BionX kits, Rio Mobility Firefly, etc.) or accessory and/or wheelset upgrades.

While we will consider applications for motorized equipment (such as Action TrackChairs or other offroad power chairs, power soccer chairs, etc.), please note that because our average grant size is around $3,000, we cannot always make a large enough grant to make such a purchase feasible. If you are applying for one of these, be sure to clearly explain why this is the best equipment to help you get active.

Application Deadline: September 30, 2017
