The Organization for Autism Research and the Community Grant Competition supports the design, packaging, and distribution of resources that aim to enhance the physical/health and quality of life of autistic individuals. This competition recognizes the expertise of community members and aims to empower community stakeholders, such as autistic individuals, family members, and community organizations, to share their knowledge in order to improve health outcomes for autistic people.
Up to seven grants will be awarded to support the development of a practical tool that can positively impact the health of autistic individuals, either directly or indirectly (e.g. by providing guidance to caregivers or providers). A full list of project priorities can be found in the Request for Applications. Grants will range from $1,000-$10,000. Find more information and the application here.
