The Ralph Braun Foundation has launched its first grant program for mobility equipment. Qualified applicants have an opportunity to receive up to $5,000 toward the purchase of mobility equipment–including wheelchair vans and lifts.
In order to qualify, applicants must be working with a mobility dealer who is in good standing with the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA). This dealer needs to have evaluated the applicant for the mobility product that best meets the customer’s needs. Grant winners will need to provide proof that the remaining funding required to complete the sale is secured. Grant awards must result in an immediate equipment sale, and checks will be made to the representing dealer.
The application form is available at www.ralphbraunfoundation.org and must be submitted in its entirety online by Nov. 30, 2011.
Individuals and dealers will be notified by Friday, Dec. 16, 2011 if their grant has been awarded.
