The José Blakely Memorial Grant
The José Blakely Memorial Grant focuses on one individual a year. Anyone that is looking to increase their independence is eligible.
This grant will not be limited to just one device that can increase independence but whatever is necessary to have a sustained impact on the recipient's life.
If you are interested in applying for this grant please go to our application page. Submissions are reviewed in July of every year with a recipient being selected by August.
José was not only a great friend and mentor of mine but he was the first person to encourage me to begin to use assistive technologies to increase my independence. Without José, I would not be in the honored position to be able to help others as he helped me.
