How we determine what to fund

Adira invites the perspectives of people living with these diseases and caregivers early, often and throughout its grant cycles. We do this by:

  • Directly asking the people who are most impacted by these diseases to weigh in.
  • Gathering needs assessments and reports from grantees who have conducted their own direct listening.
  • Prioritizing grant applicants that incorporate listening activities.
  • Ensuring the majority of seats on the independent review committee—a group responsible for assessing, scoring, and determining which grant projects to fund—are people most impacted by neurodegenerative diseases.
