Grant for Children with Special Needs

The UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation is a non profit charity that offers grants up to $5000 for families to help pay for medical services and equipment for children with special needs. This can include physical and occupational therapy, wheelchairs, orthotics, eyeglasses and more. They will also help pay for certain services or items when insurance does not cover it completely. In 2007, they provided 1500 grants to families in need. There are eligibility requirements. The child must reside in the USA, have commercial health insurance and be younger than 16 years of age. The family must qualify financially as well. For more information visit UnitedHealthcare Children's Foundation.

What a great opportunity. The application takes only 15-20 minutes to fill out and you will need a letter of necessity from the child's doctor.
