Awarded a Grant
If you are selected for a grant, you are required to submit an online pledge form committing to provide feedback and verifying use of funds. To honor your pledge, after you have used or almost finished using your grant funds please complete the verification and feedback process.
You will be instructed through your online account to fulfill the following tasks in the following order:
- Complete the pledge form before receiving funds.
- Complete the receipt form and upload receipt copies.
- Complete the Grant Feedback Form which has the following 3 questions:
- How did you use your grant funds?
- What treatment opportunities were made available with the grant funds?
- How did this affect your healing process?
Recipients who complete these 3 steps are eligible for the Re-application Process. Each grant recipient is eligible to receive lifetime grant funds of $10,000 per individual or $30,000 per family. If you haven’t received this amount, you are eligible for additional funding. We typically give funding in 3 increments. You may apply for additional funds at any time. Simply log back into your account if and when they are needed.
We also want to learn more about you and your Lyme journey. Please share your story! It may be used as a Story of Hope on our website. We will be interested to learn how the treatment grant affected your healing and what opportunities were made available to you. (Note – many recipients use their application as a guide for their story and add information about the grant and treatment opportunities). Please also send photos.
We appreciate frequent communication and value being involved in your journey. Please email your story and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
