The family must contribute as much as possible to this project.

The subvention cannot serve for recurring services and is not renewed automatically.

We do not accept requests to purchase objects or make renovations.  Therapeutic activities, training, outings, and equipment financing are not eligible.

That project must be done during the year that the subvention is allotted. For the summer camp, day camp and shadow support, the project must be done during summer, from June to August inclusively.

Any subvention request must be presented to the Foundation after other organizations, governments and communities have refused. The FRAS is the last resource.

THE SUBSIDY MUST SERVE EXCLUSIVELY TO RESPOND TO NEEDS FOR WHICH IT WAS GRANTED AND MUST NOT BE USED FOR ANY OTHER MEANS.  ANY UNUSED AMOUNTS MUST BE RETURNED TO THE FOUNDATION.

However, the selection committee will consider any special situation.
