Healthy Parkinson’s Communities™ Grants

The Healthy Parkinson’s Communities grants program aims to help us realize our mission to help people with Parkinson’s live well today. By funding programs and initiatives that are unique to the places and people they are designed to support, we can work to eliminate barriers and expand Parkinson’s care for all. 

Our Grant Priorities

The Healthy Parkinson’s Communities grants program fosters collaborative work in the Parkinson’s sector by supporting the integration and/or expansion of unique projects that change how people live with Parkinson’s. The program is available to fund both grassroots and established initiatives that address one or more of the following priorities:

  • Health disparities and inequities that affect people living with Parkinson’s
  • Creation of or increased access to resources that embrace a holistic approach to living well with Parkinson’s
  • Health literacy and awareness of Parkinson’s
  • Cross-sector collaboration within the local community to help people live well with Parkinson’s
