Special Olympics is pleased to announce that the 2020 Inclusive Health Innovation Grant application period is now open. These small grants reflect our commitment to improving access to mainstream health services in the U.S. for people with intellectual disabilities. The deadline to submit applications is November 1, 2019. Applicants must be U.S.-based organizations eligible to receive Federal funding to apply for this grant opportunity. This opportunity is intended for mainstream (non-disability) organizations that have national-level influence.
With support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, these grants are intended to support mainstream organizations to take on inclusive health practices and contribute to the overall effort to reach the tipping point whereby inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in mainstream services and programs becomes the norm, not the exception.
