The Quality of Life Grants Program impacts and empowers people living with paralysis, their families, and caregivers by providing grants to nonprofit organizations whose projects and initiatives foster inclusion, involvement, and community engagement while promoting health and wellness for those affected by paralysis in all 50 states and U.S. territories.
A successful Reeve Foundation Quality of Life grant is an award invested into a specific project or part of a program or project that directly impacts the lives of people with paralysis, their families, and caregivers. The impact can be demonstrated through the numbers of people served and other quantitative measures, along with stories and examples of quality of life improvements. Nonprofit Organizations with programs promoting expansion, innovation, best practices, promising practices, and/or evidence-based practices are encouraged to apply.
Special Consideration – Underserved Populations
Special consideration will be given to proposed projects that serve current military and/or veterans and their families, as well as those projects that target individuals with paralysis in underserved groups of the population, including (but not limited to): persons at risk of incarceration, current or released prisoners; ethnic minorities; homeless; indigenous or tribal communities; LGBTQ; limited English proficiency; rural residents; migrant workers; low-income and/or poverty populations; older adults/elderly; and newly injured people with paralysis and their caregivers.
