Autistic People of Color Fund – EMERGENCY APPLICATION
Please ONLY use this version of the application if you are currently in crisis and your ask is for an emergency.

If you're looking for the full application, it's here:

*** This fund is for autistic people of color, not for parents, caregivers, or family members. Effective September 1st, 2020, parents, caregivers, and family members are no longer allowed to apply for funding.
Read more here: ***

This fund is meant for autistic people of color applying for themselves – autistic youth of color and autistic adults of color. (This includes when an autistic person asks a trusted person to help fill out the application.)

It should take about 25 minutes on average to complete the application using this web form. There are 22 total questions beginning on the next page. Almost all of them are required.

*** We will do our best to respond to all crisis requests for funding within the next month after applying. We do our best to minimize gatekeeping as much as possible, unlike conventional grant-making and funding processes. ***
