WITH Foundation Invites LOIs for Healthcare for Adults with Developmental Disabilities

Established in 2002, the WITH Foundation works to promote comprehensive health care for adults with developmental disabilities that addresses their unique and fundamental needs.

To that end, the foundation is inviting Letters of Intent from organizations for efforts to promote comprehensive health care for adults with developmental disabilities. Grants will be awarded in support of programs that improve delivery of health care to adult consumers with developmental disabilities that include at least one of the following facets: improve health practitioner competency through education and/or training programs; address the current inadequate reimbursement system; advance formal care coordination; enhance public awareness regarding the inadequacies of developmentally disabled care in order to advance systemic change; increase understanding of supported decision-making in healthcare settings; national efforts in digital health that support designers and developers to include the perspectives/experiences of the IDD community within the design process in order to create better technology for all; social policy research; and identify and overcome barriers to high-quality healthcare access. The foundation typically provides a year of support, of usually between $30,000 and $50,000, but may cover as much as three years to support programming that warrants extended funding.

Letters of Intent are due April 16. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal by June 2, 2020.

To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

See the WITH Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: April 16, 2020 (Letters of Intent)
