Community Grant Program

The American Parkinson Disease Association Connecticut Chapter’s Grant Program’s goal is to increase access and affordability of Wellness programs, Support Groups, and Educational initiatives for people with Parkinson Disease within Connecticut.  We intend to reach as many individuals from the PD community throughout the state with quality programming as possible. The American Parkinson Disease Association Connecticut Chapter intends to foster more diverse, equitable, and inclusive community programming.

Community Grant applications are accepted twice a year, and funds are not retroactive, so please plan accordingly. Grant applications for the coming year will be due:

Financial Hardship Fund

The APDA Connecticut 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.

If you have any questions or need assistance exploring additional community resources, contact Holly Seymour, APDA CT Chapter program director, at 860-996-4276 or for more information.
