The HobbleJog Foundation was created to help improve the quality of life for individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI). Our primary focus is to support proven and innovative post-acute services that strengthen the independence, productivity and well-being of TBI survivors. We provide grants on a national scale to qualified organizations that provide post-acute resources.
For 2022, the HobbleJog Foundation is making available two $5000 grants to qualified organizations that provide post-acute services. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2022. Awards will be announced May 05, 2022.
Post-acute services include but are not limited to; technology services to assist in the regaining of memory, focus, and goal-setting functions, neuropsychological evaluations and interventions, adjustment counseling services, stress interventions, vocational training, transitional home, and community support.
Examples of past grant funding include:
- LifeBridge Health Brain Injury Services, Baltimore MD. This grant helped provide intensive post-acute care services including providing technology services to assist in the regaining of memory, focus and goal setting functions.
- Brain Injury Association of North Carolina. This grant allowed BIANC to provide a week-long camp for TBI survivors.
- Technology Support Grant. This grant provided technology support to a TBI survivor accepted to college.
- Love Your Brain. This grant allows TBI survivors to participate in the Love Your Brain program at no cost to them. Love Your Brain provides yoga, retreat, and mindset programs to build community and foster resilience for people affected by TBI.
- Brain Injury Association of Maryland. The BIAMD grant helps the organization reach and advocate for individuals and families impacted by traumatic brain injury.
- Brain Education Strategies & Technology (BEST). The BEST grant helped fund a pilot iOS app training program to help 10 young adults with brain injuries return to school or the workforce. BEST is a non-profit organization with a national focus on helping traumatic brain injury survivors regain their independence and productivity.
Applications may be submitted by organizations including health care facilities, advocacy organizations, and private businesses provided the primary focus is providing post-acute services directly to individuals with traumatic brain injury. Preference will be given to non-profit organizations located within the United States.
The selected grant recipients will receive a check in the award amount made payable to the organization.
The HobbleJog Foundation requires that grant recipients publicly acknowledge the grant assistance and how the funds directly benefit TBI survivors in their social media and publicity platforms.
The deadline for applications is midnight Eastern Time on April 15, 2022. A HobbleJog representative will confirm receipt of the application by email within 48 hours.
Review Panel Info & Dates
The HobbleJog Foundation will convene a Review Panel by April 30, 2022. The goal of the Review Panel is to review the grant applications and determine if eligibility requirements have been met. Eligible applications will then be reviewed and scored according to the Selection Criteria below.
If the Review Panel seeks additional information or clarification from an applicant, a HobbleJog representative will initiate the contact.
No Review Panel Member may discuss directly with the applicant any aspect of the application in order to reduce any opportunity for bias. In the event a Review Panel Member has a potential conflict of interest, that member will recuse themselves from scoring and voting on that application.
Applicants will be notified by email of final determination and/or award status no later than May 05, 2022.
