Pervasive needs in neurodegenerative disease

Giving people most impacted more time, money, energy, confidence and connection

Letters of Intent were due on Oct. 18 and are currently under review. Adira will notify organizations whether or not they are invited to submit full proposals by mid-November.

Adira's 2021 grant priorities

This is Adira’s third round of competitive grants. Our priorities are based on a listening period held during each grant cycle. We have widened our reach and improved with each round. Learn more here.

Here are the priorities we are focusing on this round:

1. Simplifying clinical research

Programs that provide education, navigation, or direct support services to people living with neurodegenerative diseases and caregivers to facilitate the removal of participation barriers in clinical trials and research.

2. Preparing for future threats to livelihood

Programs that support education, navigation, and skill-building activities that provide opportunity for people living with neurodegenerative diseases and caregivers to prepare and implement a planned, phased approach to their disease journey.

3. Thriving again in common pursuits

Programs that support inclusive social and recreational activities, providing opportunity for people living with neurodegenerative diseases and caregivers to easily access and enjoy community-based spaces and resources.
