Mission
ACT Today! is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to raise awareness and provide treatment services and support to families to help their children with autism achieve their full potential.
Program Description

The ACT Today! board distributes grants quarterly each year.

About Our Grant Program
Our ability to raise funds is the single most important activity that determines our grant-giving for the year. Once we determine how much we can give each year, we review the following items when considering approval of a grant request:

  • Amount of grant request – Typical grants awarded range between $100 - $5,000.
  • Household income – While we have not set an income level cap, incomes below $100,000 per year are reviewed first.
  • Type of treatment requested – Our mission is to fund effective treatments and needed assessments.
  • Numbers of family members with ASD diagnosis – Applications from families with multiple children with ASDs are reviewed first.

What do the grants fund?
ACT Today! has provided grants to fund the following treatments, however if you need help funding another type of service for your family, please apply! The ACT Today! board considers all types of treatments that help a family living with autism.
