The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) has extended the closing date for its Access for Athletes grant applications to December 15.
The annual grants provide funding to physically challenged individuals for equipment such as sports wheelchairs, handcycles, mono skis and sports prosthetics, as well as resources for training and competition expenses. To be eligible for a grant through Access for Athletes, an athlete’s physical disability must be recognized within the International Paralympic Committee classifications. Grant awards are announced in early April. For more information, visit the CAF website at www.challengedathletes.org/.
