NEXT for AUTISM Invites LOIs for Color the Spectrum Community Grants

NEXT for AUTISM works to transform the national landscape of services for people with autism by strategically designing, launching, and supporting innovative programs. The organization believes that individuals with autism have the potential to live fulfilling, productive lives when supported by excellent services and connected to their communities.

To that end, NEXT for AUTISM is accepting applications for its Color the Spectrum Community Grants, which will provide $25,000 to help students on the autism spectrum transition from school to adulthood. This year, NEXT for AUTISM is also championing autistic-led and centered organizations and initiatives. Application categories for the program include:

Home — Applications in this focus area should address the need to design and/or develop and maintain high-quality living environments for adults with autism.

Work — Applications in this area should address the need for autistic adults to gain and retain paid employment.

Social — Applications focused in this area should support autistic adults to make connections, build relationships, and establish friendships.

An organization may also serve multiple areas of these categories.

Eligible applicants must be tax-exempt as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The deadline for LOIs is August 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the NEXT for AUTISM website.

Deadline: August 1, 2021 (Letters of Intent)
