Date:12/19/2013

(PRWEB) December 19, 2013

Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism and science advocacy organization, announced today that it has awarded more than $350,000 to 66 local organizations with the launch of its Neighborhood Grants program. The grants were made possible through Autism Speaks’ partnership with Sprouts Farmers Markets, one of the largest and fastest growing natural foods retailers in the country. Service providers located in the following states where Sprouts stores operate were eligible to apply: Arizona, California, Colorado, Oklahoma, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas and Utah. The Southern California Chapter also benefited from the Neighborhood Grants and was awarded $110,000.

Chapman University in Orange was among this year’s grant winners with two grants awarded for A Spanish language outreach program and a program for young adults and adults.

Autism Speaks’ Neighborhood Grants are designed to promote and increase the field of local service providers to help improve the lives of those affected by autism and better serve this growing community. These grants will help service providers expand existing programs or create new programs that demonstrate innovation in providing services to enrich the lives of individuals with autism. Grant recipients were selected based on recommendations from each Autism Speaks Chapter and local Autism Speaks volunteers.

Recipients were awarded up to $5,000 addressing the areas of education, recreation and community activities, young adult/adult services and technology. Funded programs include museum inclusion programs; iPads and SmartBoards for classrooms; mentoring programs with peers; training for Spanish speaking families; theatre programs; support groups and more.
