Innovative Health Foundation Grants

Innovative Health Foundation (IHF) invites families with children with special needs to apply for grants to supplement the costs of clinical treatment.  IHF is a non-profit organization with a mission to "increase access to clinical services and fund projects that can improve clinical methods being used to address the population of children with special needs".  Grants can be made for children experiencing a wide range of neurological, psychological, and learning disorders, include Autism Spectrum, Down syndrome, ADHD, and others.  IHF seeks to meet the challenges faced by parents and guardians of effected children by providing grants of $1,000 to $5,000 to augment the treatment schedule of children, either through an increase in the frequency or extension of the course of therapy. The application deadline for this grant cycle is September 30th; the money will be made available October through December. Grant funds are limited and applicants should apply as soon as possible. Applications are considered in the order in which they are received and once available funds are exhausted, this grant cycle will end.

Parents must demonstrate financial need, and the child must be enrolled in a course of treatment with a diagnosis and prognosis that indicates prospects for improvement. Healthcare providers must submit an application showing generally recognized credentials to provide services. If you are interested in this program, you'll find the Application Form for Clinical Scholarship available at
