Class registration fees, a membership or adaptive equipment might make community integration possible. Microgrant money may not be used for camps, conferences, vacations or out-of-state travel. Some out-of-state travel may be considered for residents living near state borders.

The application review and grant process may take up to 45 days, including a review by the Department of Human Services for requests over $500.
