Members of the Northern New England Down Syndrome Congress can request a grant for various needs and activities, per person, per year for an individual with Down syndrome. Membership contact information must be current at the time of application. Approval of application is at the discretion of the Grant Committee. Awards will be granted quarterly, but will be limited per quarter.
Northern New England Down Syndrome Congress provides financial assistance for individuals with Down syndrome to participate in extracurricular activities such as: recreational activities (dance, camps, music etc..), extra therapies, educational expenses, educational materials(iPad, iPad apps, reading programs etc.), activities that support inclusion into the community and activities supporting independence of an individual with Down syndrome . We will also provide financial assistance for medical expenses and/or related expenses to a hospital stay not covered by private or state insurances. Grant monies will be sent directly to the program (invoice required), reimbursed with a paid receipt, or where there’s a need to purchase a resource, a gift card at the discretion of the Grant Committee.
In order for us to be able to provide all these wonderful services and enable us to do more in the future, we need the support of our members. Volunteering is essential for the growth of NNEDSC. There are many areas in which you can help: Winter Carnival, Buddy Walk, and Golf Tournament etc. Please consider giving back so others can receive.
