Applications are reviewed on an individual basis and the timeline for each application may be different. Even if you meet all requirements and submit all documentation, we depend on the funding available to give grants.
As we are an all-volunteer team we appreciate your patience and understanding as we may take a bit of time to respond.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Any stroke survivor of over 21 years of age, who resides in the United States, and demonstrates financial need, is eligible for the grant.
If the stroke survivor can’t apply, we invite family members, caregivers or medical professionals to apply on their behalf.
Although we would love to be able to support all applicants, our Selection Committee reviews applications on a case-by-case basis and determine the amount granted on an individual basis to ensure we are making the greatest impact for stroke recovery.
Even if you meet all requirements and submit all documentation, we depend on the funding available to give grants.
The medical facility providing the treatment will send an invoice to The Stroke Foundation for the grant amount. It is the patient and/or caregiver’s responsibility to ensure the funds are used appropriately (follow up with the medical facility, attend the therapy sessions, etc.).
No, the Stroke Survivor Fund grant is solely to help cover the costs of physical, occupational or speech therapy that is being carried out in a licensed facility. The Stroke Foundation does not provide grant funds directly to individuals.
Due to the significant cost of therapies in the United States, it is unlikely that the Survivor Fund Grant will cover your entire therapy plan. The Stroke Foundation looks at each application on a case-by-case basis and reserves the right to determine the amount of the grant for each application.
No, The Stroke Foundation cannot recommend or advise on the medical facility imparting the therapy, the course of therapy recommended, or anything related to the medical treatment of a patient.
