Mini Grant Program

The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans offers a Mini Grant Program for families and teachers. It has been a great success with many families and teachers from all across the Greater New Orleans area receiving grants to help students with Autism in their classrooms and children and adults with Autism in their community.

Qualified families and teachers in Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, and St. Tammany Parishes may submit only one grant proposal per year. Awards may not exceed $300.00 and may be awarded less than the requested amount.

Application Deadline

The Mini Grant program for 2013 is now closed. Applications for 2014 will be accepted October 1 – 31, 2014. In order for applications to be considered, they must be postmarked or received within this application period. Applications received before October 1st or postmarked after October 31st will not be considered. Recipients are notified before “Black Friday” (the Friday after Thanksgiving).

Additional Requirements

  • Teachers are required to submit a copy of their teaching certificate with their application.
  • Parents are required to submit an IEP or an assessment for autism for the child for whom they are trying to obtain funding.
  • Original receipts for all items purchased with the grant funds must be submitted within 90 days of receipt of funds. If we do not receive your receipt, you will not be considered for future mini-grant awards.
