In partnership with the American Parkinson Disease Association
Find a sense of community by joining a support group near you. APDA has several Parkinson’s support groups throughout the state of Vermont.
Financial Hardship Fund
The APDA Vermont 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 The APDA VT Chapter program director, at 800-651-8466 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
