Harrisburg – I am pleased to inform you that people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as families with a member who has it, can apply for state grants of up to $500 to help offset the costs of certain services or activities. The deadline to apply for this program is April 17.

Priority will be given to individuals who did not receive this grant from the Bureau of Autism Services in the past. Remaining grants will be offered on a first-come basis. Total funding for these mini-grants is limited.

To apply, visit the bureau’s Web site. You may also call toll free 1-866-539-7689 (Select Option #2) and leave a message requesting a paper application be mailed to you.

In addition, I would like you to know that applications for the Adult Community Autism Program begin on April 1. This program is a way for adults living with Autism Spectrum Disorder to get needed services.

Feel free to pass this information on to anyone you know who may find it helpful and, as always, don’t hesitate to contact me if I may be of further service to you or your family.
