WITH Foundation invites applications for programs serving adults with disabilities

The mission of the WITH Foundation is to promote the establishment of comprehensive health care for adults with developmental disabilities designed to address their unique and fundamental needs.

To that end, the foundation awards grants (usually between $30,000 and $50,000) in support of programs that improve the delivery of health care to adults with developmental disabilities and include at least one of the following: improving health practitioner competency through education and/or training programs; addressing the current inadequate reimbursement systems; advancing innovations in formal care coordination; enhancing advocacy regarding the inadequacies of developmentally disabled care to advance systemic change; increasing understanding of supported decision making in healthcare settings; promoting national efforts in digital health that support designers and developers to include the perspectives/experiences of the IDD community within the design process, to create better technology for all; social policy research; and identifying and overcoming barriers to high-quality healthcare access.

Applicants must have tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status as defined by the Internal Revenue Service. While San Francisco Bay Area applications may be given preferential consideration, applications from other areas in the United States are not excluded.

Letters of intent are due April 14, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. PT, and selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal due June 5, 2023, at 5:00 p.m. PT.

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the WITH Foundation website.

Deadline: April 14, 2023 at 5:00 p.m. PT (Letters of Intent)
