Applications are now being accepted for the LEO Grant! Please share!
A portion of the funds raised from Go Leo Go and your generous donations will go towards this grant. This is intended for a family with a child 18 yrs or younger in need of accessible transportation. While we recognize this need extends much further beyond this age category, we have decided this is part of the criteria for this year’s LEO Grant. It is our dream that this grant will continue to grow and we can help many others. Applications are being accepted on an ongoing basis. There is no current deadline and we will continue accepting applications on a rolling basis as we hope this will be an annual occurrence. Updates will be posted via Facebook and leospride.org.
Grant monetary amount will vary depending on funds raised.
General criteria for application is as follows.
(1) The applicant MUST be 18 yrs or younger AND 1) have SMA OR 2) live in South Carolina with another existing medical condition that requires an accessible van.
(2) The purpose of the grant MUST be for obtaining an accessible vehicle or for modification of an existing vehicle owned by applicant (or applicant’s caregivers).
(3) The applicant, or others on their behalf, MUST be actively fundraising for the purchase of an accessible van or for modification of a van.
