Community Grant Program

Grants for Parkinson’s Community Programming

The American Parkinson Disease Association Massachusetts Chapter funds a variety of community programs that are making a difference in the lives of those living with Parkinson Disease.  Our program’s goal is to increase the access to and affordability of Wellness programs, Support Groups and Educational initiatives for people with Parkinson Disease within Massachusetts.  These programs may be created by either organizations or individuals. Past grant program recipients include:

  • Rock Steady Boxing – multiple locations

  • Dance for Healthy Aging with Parkinson’s Disease
  • Yoga classes — multiple locations
  • Parkinson’s Cycle
  • Choirs — multiple locations

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.
