Step of Hope grants fund autism projects

SOH grayscale 75-0-100-0 NoDate RIn 2003, AuSM’s Board of Directors created a support grant program with a portion of the proceeds from the Steps of Hope fundraising walk. It was the directors’ intent to broaden AuSM’s ability to meet the needs of individuals or organizations supporting people with autism. The goal of these grants is to stimulate creativity, encourage successful programming and expand opportunities for children and adults with ASD across multiple settings for many years to come.

2015 Steps of Hope Support Grant applications for projects supporting individuals with ASD are due July 1. Click here for more information and to download the 2015 application form.
