CVS Caremark Charitable Trust Accepting Grant Applications for Programs Serving Children With Disabilities
Deadline: June 15, 2011 and August 15, 2011

The CVS Caremark Charitable Trust seeks to support organizations that are most effective at creating positive and measurable outcomes for children with disabilities and providing healthcare services for underserved populations. Last year, the trust awarded grants to more than seventy organizations for programs focused on autism, technology, life and workforce skills, and access to health care.

For this year’s program, the trust will accept online applications from May 1 to June 15, 2011, for applications targeting children with disabilities; and from July 1 to August 15, 2011, for applications targeting health care services for underserved populations.

Inspired by a belief that children of all abilities should have equal access to educational, social, medical, and therapeutic services in order to live a healthy and happy life, the trust seeks applications from organizations that are providing the following support services and programs for children under the age of 21 and their families: early intervention — therapeutic and support services designed to meet the needs of infants and toddlers who have a developmental delay or disability; parental support and education programs that educate, prepare, and assist parents in the care giving and support of their children; assistive technology programs that provide access to equipment or training on assistive technologies that help children learn, communicate, and thrive; and programs that support the development of social skills and/or independent living skills, including camp programs.

CVS Caremark is most interested in funding proposals where support can help an organization expand or enhance an existing program with proven success, enable organizations to support innovative new approaches that produce positive outcomes for targeted populations, or support one-time capital needs (excluding bricks and mortar).

Applications are invited from nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations in U.S. locations where CVS Caremark has a business presence (all states except Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington, and Wyoming).

One-year grants will range from $10,000 to $50,000. Previous grantees are eligible to apply in the following year if they can demonstrate significant positive outcomes.
