ASHA State Association Grants for 2013
ASHA is offering personnel grants and reimbursement grants to state associations for the 2013 calendar year. Personnel grants can be used to address issues such as personnel shortages, caseload/workload, and advocacy. Reimbursement grants advance state-level grassroots projects to improve private health plan and Medicaid reimbursement and coverage for member services and assistive technology devices. States may apply for both types of grants, but a separate application must be submitted for each.
If you are interested in applying, please read the procedures and guidelines prior to completing the application forms.
Coming in 2014–Phase 2 Projects
Because all grant funds must be spent and projects completed by December 9, 2013, ASHA will be initiating a new Phase 2 grant opportunity in 2014. ASHA does not want to discourage state associations from pursuing larger-scale initiatives and instead encourages breaking them into two smaller phases. Therefore, we are offering 2013 grant recipients the opportunity to apply for a Phase 2 grant in 2014, which would build upon 2013 grant projects. ASHA will hold a limited number of 2014 grant slots for Phase 2 applicants; however, award of a Phase 2 grant is not guaranteed, as new applications will also be considered.
A project officer has been assigned to each grant to assist you with questions and serve as your point of contact.
