Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Advocacy for Impact Grants will consider applications from patient advocacy groups around the world with a charitable status.

- May provide services to other patient communities, but their application must be focused on the ATTR amyloidosis, acute hepatic porphyria and/or primary hyperoxaluria type 1 communities

Limitations:
- Applications solely focused on research or for registries will not be considered as part of this year’s program.
