We're pleased to share information about two exciting grant opportunities offered by the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF):
Established in 1997, the Challenged Athletes Foundation recognizes the athletic greatness inherent in all people with physical challenges and supports their athletic endeavors by providing unparalleled sports opportunities that lead to success in sports — and in life.
Access for Athletes is open to any physically challenged individuals and it provide grants for equipment as well as resources for training and competition. The online application is open until December 4th, 2015, and awards will be announced in early April 2016. Last year they awarded 1,709 grants, 56% of which went to first-time applicants.
Operation Rebound is open to any US veteran or first responder with a permanent physical disability who served honorably. Grants are available to purchase equipment, as well as to assist with competition and training expenses. Operation Rebound is a year-round program so you can apply at any time.
