    Disabled Children's Relief Fund


    The Disabled Children's Relief Fund (DCRF) provides disabled children with assistance to obtain wheelchairs, orthopedic braces, walkers, lifts, hearing aids, eyeglasses, medical equipment, physical therapy, and surgery. Blind, Deaf, Amputees, and children with Cerebral Palsy, Muscular Dystrophy, Spastic Quadriplegia, Encephalitis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Spina Bifida, Down's Syndrome, and other disabilities receive assistance. DCRF focuses special attention on helping children throughout the U.S. that do not have adequate health insurance, especially the physically challenged.

    DCRF grant applications may be used for modest requests (most range between $25 to $200) for assistive devices, rehabilitative services, arts/humanities projects, or for efforts to bolster compliance with existing federal/state laws for disabled children, ages 0-18. Although there are no restrictions on the type or eligible disabilities, preference is given to applications that benefit physically challenged children in the United States in need of prosthetic and other assistive devices (not computers)

    DCRF offers three types of grants

    1. Assistive Device Grant
    2. Rehabilitative Service Grant
    3. Institutional Grant

    History of Funding
