Grants Available for Community Organizations Serving People with Paralysis
Magee Rehabilitation Hospital – Jefferson Health and The Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine are coming together to award grants to nonprofit, community organizations serving people with paralysis and their caregivers in Pennsylvania.
The newly-created State of Pennsylvania Paralysis Resource Center is a pilot program, established with a two-year $399,292 grant from the Administration on Community Living. The goal: to improve the quality of life of Pennsylvanians of all ages living with paralysis and their caregivers by improving or increasing the services and supports offered by community-based disability organizations.
The State of Pennsylvania Paralysis Resource Center will provide grants of up to $25,000 to non-profit, community organizations serving people with paralysis and their caregivers in Pennsylvania. Applicants should aim to increase access or delivery of services to people living with paralysis; improve quality of life and community integration; and build partnerships among organizations within PA.
Magee, together with The Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, will be responsible for awarding grants to qualifying organizations.
