Spinal cord injury survivors with paraplegia or quadriplegia may apply for a grant to provide funding for adaptive equipment, therapy, small home renovations or other items that are not covered by insurance but are needed to maximize their independence. Priority is given to those with newly acquired paralysis due to traumatic spinal cord injury or transverse myelitis. Due to limited resources, we must exclude applicants whose paralysis is caused by other issues such as complications at birth, stroke, ALS, Spina Bifida, Multiple Sclerosis, etc.
NYC Spinal welcomes the opportunity to support the SCI/D community as a whole. Funding for projects that will benefit larger groups of people with SCI/D such as support groups, adaptive sports and fitness programs, educational seminars and employment initiatives, is available. Applications must include a detailed budget outline.
