Request for Applications: Autism Speaks Family Service Community Grants 2014
All applicants must submit a Letter of Intent (LOI). LOIs will be accepted on a rolling basis through our online grant system from February 19 through March 28, 2014.
Autism Speaks seeks to directly support the innovative work of autism service providers in communities across the United States. The focus of our Family Services Community Grants is three-fold: to promote autism services that enhance the lives of those affected by autism; to expand the capacity to effectively serve this growing community; and to increase the field of service providers. Autism Speaks seeks to focus on building capacity and accumulating case studies and deliverables for the community at large.
We urge all potential applicants to use the following Community Tool Box website hosted by the University of Kansas: http://ctb.ku.edu/en/default.aspx. Here, applicants may find useful resources online that can help with needs assessment, program planning, measuring quality and impact and writing successful grant proposals.
Autism Speaks will accept Family Services Community Grant proposals that address one of the following areas of need:
-- Building the field and scope of educators and trainers, by providing continuing education and training to those working directly with individuals with autism spectrum disorders
-- Providing funding for consultation and hands on training to improve education for individuals with autism
-- Providing funding to increase the capacity of service providers
-- Training professionals to interact more effectively with individuals with autism spectrum disorders
-- Social skills training that provides peer modeling and inclusion with typically developing peers
-- Recreation and athletic programs for individuals with autism spectrum disorders
Young Adult/Adult Services
-- Pre-vocational and vocational training
-- Transition planning
-- Residential services
-- Recreation programs for adults
-- Life/community integration skills
Funds can be applied to support new projects, the expansion of existing projects, or the successful replication of an existing curriculum or program model. Autism Speaks places a significant focus on the end product or deliverable of each proposal that will benefit the autism community beyond those participating in the program. Deliverables include videos, manuals and curricula that will be shared on the Autism Speaks website for the broader community.
Deliverables must capture information needed for replication, expansion, and dissemination.
Autism Speaks seeks to ensure proposals provide opportunities for individuals with varying functioning levels.
Finally, careful consideration will also be given to proposals that specifically address the needs of underserved communities.
Autism Speaks will not award grants to individuals or fund an individual or family for participation in personal programs. We encourage individuals to ask local providers and organizations to submit proposals that will meet our stated goals. The amount requested should be in the $5,000 - $25,000 range, and multi-year grants will not be awarded.
