Eligible expenses include medical, dental, vision, hearing services, respite, supplies, and more
Are you looking for support and assistance for yourself or someone living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia? The Mini Grant Program, funded by the Alaska Mental Health Trust Authority and distributed by Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska, may be able to help.
This program provides financial assistance for essential items and services that directly improve the quality of life and independent functioning of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. Eligible expenses include medical, dental, vision, hearing services, supplies, therapeutic devices, adaptive equipment, caregiver respite, accessibility improvements or supplies, and services not available from any other funding source.
Caregivers deserve support and resources as much as those they care for. Respite is a vital service that can make a huge difference in the lives of those caring for someone living with dementia. This program can allow caregivers to take a break, recharge, and return to their caregiving responsibilities with renewed energy and a fresh perspective.
To apply, submit a completed mini grant application and attach a written estimate from the vendor for the cost of the item(s) or service(s) requested for the beneficiary. Applications are accepted monthly, with a deadline of the first Tuesday of each month.
For more information or application, please refer to the mini grant program guidelines. Start the application process today to take advantage of a great opportunity to help improve the life of someone who is affected by Alzheimer’s or related dementia.
