Autism Speaks Seeks Family Services Community Grant Proposals From U.S. Organizations

Autism Speaks, a nonprofit autism science and advocacy organization, is accepting Letters of Intent from community organizations for its sixth round of Family Services Community Grants to promote services that will enrich the lives of individuals with autism spectrum disorders. The focus of these grants will be on proposals that serve to build the field of services for individuals with autism and expand the capacity to effectively serve this growing community.

Proposals for family services grants are sought in the areas of Recreation/Community Activities, Education, or Young Adult/Adult Services. Grants may be used to support new programs or the expansion of existing projects. Preference will be given to programs that expand the numbers of individuals served.

Priority will be given to agencies or organizations that address the needs of those who have little access to services. Agencies that provide services to the underserved are encouraged to submit proposals.

Autism Speaks does not award grants to individuals or fund an individual or family for participation in personal programs. Grant awardees are required to wait at least one year before submitting another application.

The amount requested should be in the $5,000 to $25,000 range. Multi-year grants will not be awarded. In the last grant cycle, Autism Speaks awarded over $500,000 in total Family Services Community Grants to twenty-four organizations.

Letters of Intent will be accepted on a rolling basis through April 8, 2011; invited full proposals are due by May 9, 2011.

The complete 2011-12 Family Services Community Grants Request for Applications, online LOI process, and examples of previously funded programs are available at the Autism Speaks Web site.
