Call for Applications: The ERIC Fund

Friday, March 29, 2019

Sponsored by: The ERIC Fund


The ERIC Fund (formally known as The Eric C. Savader Memorial Disabilities Fund) was founded in 1998 in memory of Eric Savader, a disability rights proponent who worked with leading national disability and political organizations in Washington, DC. Eric believed strongly that individuals with disabilities, regardless of the severity of their disability, could and should lead independent lives in the community. The ERIC Fund was founded to help provide assistive technology, devices and equipment for individuals with disabilities to help them live, work, go to school and participate actively in community life.

2019 marks the 21st year that The Eric Fund will offer awards. These grants will assist persons with disabilities living in the Washington, DC area who demonstrate a need for assistive technology or equipment in purchasing such devices or equipment to help them lead independent, inclusive lives. To date, the organization has funded more than $200,000 in grants. Click here to apply and for more information.

Supported by a grant from The HSC Foundation. Developed and maintained by SchoolTalk, Inc. and Inclusion Research Institute in collaboration with DC Partners in Transition.
