APDA Financial Hardship Fund
The APDA Georgia Chapter has a limited amount of funds available to assist people with Parkinson’s disease (PWP) who are experiencing financial hardship. This fund is intended to help improve PWP’s quality of life. To be considered for an award, the applicant must have a diagnosis of PD/Parkinsonism; be experiencing financial difficulties; understand that this award is not intended as an ongoing support fund; complete a post-experience survey; reside in the community, not in a rehabilitation center, long-term care, or skilled nursing facility; and understand that the payment may take at least 30 days to process after the application is approved. (A detailed list of the eligibility guidelines is on the application.)
Awards are made on a first-come basis and are subject to the approval of an application and the availability of funds. The fund is subject to change or discontinuation with limited notice.
