Financial Assistance Programs for Patients and Families
Care Assist Grants can aid financially stressed people living with ALS and their families with equipment and services. Assistance is available for:
- Respite Care (A portion of these grants are brought to you in part by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation.)
- Home Modifications
- Van Modifications or Van Purchase Assistance
- Transportation to an ALS Certified Center of Excellence or Clinic affiliated with The ALS Association Florida Chapter
If you are interested in applying, please contact a Care Services staff member. Payment is made directly to the vendor or service provider whenever possible; otherwise the client is reimbursed up to the amount of the grant upon proof of payment. Clients can be approved for one $500 grant per quarter. Approved monies must be expended within six (6) months of approval letter date.
If you have additional questions about the Florida Chapter Care Assist Grant Program, please contact your Regional Care Manager: Care Services.
PLEASE NOTE: All services and programs provided by Care Services are free of charge to people living with ALS and their families. The availability is directly related to the Chapter's fundraising efforts as well as the ongoing generosity of our community, our donors and our supporters.
