Description

The JDRF Impact Grant provides funding support to individuals and/or organizations looking to transform innovative ideas into successful initiatives that address the critical needs of people living with Type One Diabetes (T1D). This incubator program is a chance to turn your vision into a reality.

The best ideas come from personal experience and this initiative grants funding to unique projects that are by and for people with T1D.  We want to know what solutions you envision to address current challenges in diabetes.

The Impact Grants reflect JDRF’s commitment to not only cure this disease, but allows us to consider a wide range of ideas that will benefit the T1D community.  Proposals may be focused on an online initiative, a community effort, or an innovative new approach to diabetes management. These projects can range from artistic to data-driven.

Successful grant applications will meet program requirements and will be selected through a stringent review process. Although all eligible proposals will be considered, JDRF especially encourages applications related to innovative community engagement ideas.
