Grant Funding

The Bowen Foundation for Autism runs a grant program annually in partnership with The Arc of the Central Chesapeake to reach families in need of assistance. The amount of funding available varies year to year but traditionally the program awards funding to help local families pay for every day expenses: doctors’ appointments, behavioral therapies, safety equipment, learning devices and other services.

We have granted all of the funds for this cycle, but we are constantly fundraising to obtain more funds. To be alerted when there is new money available, please sign up below.

“Tyler was awarded a grant from the Bowen Foundation to pay for speech therapy. Tyler has come a long way since he was a non-verbal toddler and then a barely verbal kindergartener.” He has more spontaneous speech than before, and he loves to introduce himself to people. Sometimes his pronunciation is a little unclear, but it has improved. This could not have been possible without the help of therapy. Thank you for making it happen.”
