The mission of Answers for Autism is to increase and broaden public knowledge and awareness of the behaviors, social issues and emotional needs of individuals on the autism spectrum so that all individuals can participate in and contribute to the community without fear of bias or loss of individuality.

Grants will be considered in two categories: Public Awareness, and Programs benefiting individuals on the autism spectrum and/or their families.
