Hi mooreheadr!

The Grant Committee at the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation might be able
to help you with your specific needs. Their website offers guidelines
to begin this process. “The initial contact should be made by letter
of inquiry stating the amount sought, purpose of the grant, and nature
of the organization requesting the grant. Please include an e-mail
address if available. The letter should be sent to:
The Grant Committee
c/o Managing Director
Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
6350 North Andrews Avenue
Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. 33309”

The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation offers another grant called the
Brighter Tomorrow Grants that are intended to aid people like you.
“The goal of the grant is to provide individuals with MS with goods or
services (valued at up to $1000.00 per recipient) to improve their
quality of life by enhancing safety, self-sufficiency, comfort, or
well-being…. To qualify, a person must be 18 years of age or older and
diagnosed with MS, or the parent of a minor child diagnosed with MS,
and be a permanent U.S. resident. They must not have any other means
of fulfilling the need they express.”  Applicants are asked to provide
basic personal and financial information, and to write a brief essay
of 100 words or less to describe how the grant would help them have A
Brighter Tomorrow.“  I recommend completing the on-line application to
see if you qualify.

These options will help your search for a grant. If you would like me
to add specific state grants that are available for you, please let me
know by writing your state of residency in a request to clarify my
