High Impact Innovative Assistive Technology Grant

Funding Agency:
Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation

Launched in 2015 in partnership with the Administration for Community Living (ACL), the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation’s High Impact Innovative Assistive Technology (HIIAT) Grant is a competitive grant cycle that awards a small number of one-year grants of up to $75,000. Part of the Foundation’s overall Quality of Life Grant Program, the grant helps state programs expand their reach in the field of assistive technology through new innovations that will impact people living with paralysis in their homes and communities. For the upcoming 2019 cycle, the HIIAT grants program has recently made changes to its application process.

Starting with the new grant cycle opening on July 15, previously awarded Quality of Life Grantees are now eligible to apply. However, past grantees must submit proposals for new and innovative projects and not replications of previously awarded projects. They must also be in good standing with the Reeve Foundation, which is defined as having successfully closed out their past grant award, including a timely submitted final report indicating program accomplishments and fully expended grant funds as related to the awarded grant budget.

The new application cycle for the HIIAT grants will be open for two months, will all applications due by September 16.
