Hofstetter Grant Application

American Council of the Blind of Indiana Opportunity Grant Fund

Each year the fund has $1,000.00 available, in part or in whole, to aid any certified legally blind resident of Indiana. The grant would partially or fully fund such activity, materials, and/or equipment as may enhance the personal, educational, entrepreneurial or vocational aims of one who may be unable to obtain funding through other means. A secondary purpose of the fund is to advise applicants of such other known means as may be available to meet their need.
