New Community Grant Competition Seeks Applicants | Organization for Autism Research

OAR News

AIR-POAR and the Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P) have partnered to create a Community Grant Competition, which supports the design, packaging, and distribution of informational resources that aim to enhance the physical and mental 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.

In this inaugural year of the competition, we will award up to seven grants 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). This year, applicants interested in developing resources for healthcare providers to better serve autistic patients will receive the highest priority; a full list of project priorities can be found in the Request for Applications. Grants will range from $1,000 to $10,000.

The application period opens on October 8, 2021, and closes on April 30, 2022. Winners will be notified by July 31, 2022, and will receive funds as early as August 15, 2022, for a grant period lasting through August 30, 2023.
