Flex Grant Program

We have repurposed our Flex Grant Program to better respond to the evolving COVID-19 public health crisis.  To learn more, click here

We thank you for your interest in The Susie Foundation’s Flex Grant Program. The program seeks to aid homebound patients and families impacted by ALS by providing financial assistance (no more than $1,000) to help offset expenses not traditionally covered by private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, and other assistance programs. 


The Flex Grant Program offers financial support through reimbursements to help cover the costs of respite care, adaptive devices not covered by medical insurance, certain medical expenses and equipment, as well as home modifications.  Click here for a full description of these products and services eligible for reimbursement.


Eligible applicants include all residents of Connecticut, Massachsetts, and Rhode Island who are homebound and have a definitive diagnosis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Grants will be awarded biannually and based, in part, on the availability of funds. First time applicants, as well as those exhibiting dire and/or debilitating personal, psychological, familial, medical, or financial circumstances may be given priority.

Important Dates to Remember

Annual Grant Periods

We administer both a spring and fall grant period each year, which means applicants have two opportunities each year to receive funding. However, there are important dates to remember during each period to be sure your application materials are received in time for consideration. To help, we've put together this helpful calendar to help you keep things in order.
