The Children's Hemiplegia and Stroke Association (CHASA) Orthotic Grant Program provides financial assistance to families who have a child with a medical need for a foot or hand brace that is not covered or not fully covered by their health benefit plans. CHASA aims to fill the gap between the cost of the brace and what your health plan will pay.
Income limit applies. Compare your family size and average gross income (AGI)to the table on the screening application. Example: A family with 2 members must have an average AGI of $75,000 or less. You will be asked to provide detailed financial information if you are chosen to continue with the application process.
To be eligible for this grant, your child must be a U.S. citizen, have a diagnosis of hemiplegia or hemiparesis, be 17 years old or younger, with initial onset of hemiplegia or hemiparesis before 3 years of age. More details can be found on the screening application.
