The Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF) has opened applications for its annual Access for Athletes grants.
CAF’s Access for Athletes grants provide funding for equipment such as sports wheelchairs, handcycles, mono skis and sports prosthetics, as well as resources for training and competition expenses to physically challenged individuals. To be eligible for a grant, the athlete’s physical ability must be recognized within the International Paralympic Committee classifications. Each year, athletes can apply for one of three categories: coaching or training fees; competition expenses; or equipment. Applications are due by December 1, 2014 and grant awards will be announced in early April 2015.
