2018 - 2019 Philadelphia Autism Project Seed Award Funding

The Philadelphia Autism Project is pleased to announce the release of seed funding to expand our community outreach through new and existing programs and projects.  This year, the Philadelphia Autism Project will continue to build on this outreach by offering seed awards to both previously funded and new programs/groups. 

This seed funding is focused on providing creative arts and recreational opportunities for teens and young adults, and to create new and expand upon existing support and self-advocacy groups.  

Previously Funded Projects and Programs   

In order to promote the sustainability and maximize the impact of previously funded projects, the Philadelphia Autism Project will provide additional funding to previously funded groups and organizations through a brief project review and application process. All previously funded recipients are invited to apply. Groups do not have to reapply if additional funding is not needed.
