Bursary and Grant Program
--- Applications for Spring 2013 are now open ---
This program has been developed in honour and memory of Haadd founding member, Joseph Umbrico who was deeply committed to improving the lives of adults with autism and their families.
Haadd welcomes proposals for 2 types of support:
Haadd bursaries and grants are to help adults (age 18 and over) on the autism spectrum. Priority is given to those whose homes, or their family homes, are in the Greater Toronto Area.
- For individuals on the autism spectrum for projects to improve quality of life. These are the Joseph Umbrico Bursaries.
- From individuals without autism-spectrum diagnoses for grants to assist in developing projects to provide opportunities for adults on the autism spectrum. These projects are to foster the development of interests and skills in areas which may include work, art, social and/or recreational pursuits.
All applicants must be Haadd members, or must join Haadd upon submitting an application. We welcome new members at all times.
