Joey's Fund Family Grant Assists Families Affected by Autism That Need Financial Assistance

Joey’s Fund Family Grant, a program of the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, awards grants of up to $2,000 ($3,000 if there is more than one family member with autism) to families affected by autism in New England (Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine) who need financial assistance.

Grants can be used for one service or item that directly improves the life of an individual with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Some examples of items that could be covered by the grant include respite care, recreational programs, horseback riding lessons, educational consulting, educational evaluation, art classes, books, educational videos, computer software, therapies, advocacy fees, camp tuition, safety fencing, service dogs, social skills training, music therapy and musical instruments.

Applications are available on the program Website in early February and are due by early March. Required documentation includes most recent tax information, confirmation of diagnosis and a letter of reference.
