Community Grant Program

Grants for Parkinson’s Community Programming

The American Parkinson Disease Association Connecticut Chapter funds a variety of community programs that are making a difference in the lives of those living with Parkinson’s Disease.  Our program’s goal is to increase access to and affordability of Wellness programs, Support Groups and Educational initiatives for people with Parkinson’s Disease within Connecticut.  Our intent is to reach as many individuals from the PD Community as possible throughout the state with quality programming.  While we focus on the above-mentioned initiatives, the APDA reserves the right to consider programs outside of their focus.

Please note that any wellness or exercise program must have at least one certified fitness instructor, physical therapist, yogi, or other accredited fitness professional present at every meeting in order to be considered for funding.


All Applicants:
