Grants of up to $1,200 to New Hampshire low- and moderate-income individuals with physical, developmental, or emotional disabilities for products and services not funded elsewhere. Funds may be requested for a broad range of purposes, but must specifically benefit the individual for whom funds are sought. Requests from applicants age 25 and under are a priority of the HGF Trustees.

Grants are awarded for people with the following disabilities:
- Physical Disability: A physical disability is a condition that presents a long-term barrier to independently accomplishing tasks of daily living including walking and driving. People with temporary conditions expected to improve or are sufficiently controlled with medication or treatment such as a broken bone, asthma, recovery from surgery or short-term illness would not qualify.

- Emotional Disability – Adults: Adults diagnosed with a Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI) which includes schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder and borderline personality disorder are eligible.

- Emotional Disability – Children: Eligible diagnoses for children are broader but must constitute a significant mental health issue that impacts their daily level of functioning.

- Intellectual, Cognitive, Learning or Developmental Disability: People with acquired intellectual/cognitive disabilities from brain injury, dementia or who are identified with a developmental disability or delay or significant learning disability by a school system, Area Agency, social service agency or other qualified medical or human service entity are eligible for Harry Gregg funds.

Examples of acceptable purposes include, but are not limited to:
- Costs (up to $500) of non-reimbursed medical or therapy treatments not covered by insurance or other programs
- Specialty equipment services or supplies
- Modifications to living area, work site or vehicle (vehicle repairs up to $500 with written estimate with limit of two grants)
- Respite services to the recipient or caregivers
- Computers (up to $500) and adaptive software
- Camp tuition and recreational activities – applications for camp tuition or recreational activities are reviewed and awarded on an ongoing basis starting in January. The funds go quickly; applications submitted early in the year are more likely to be funded.
- Vocational, academic classes or specialized (requiring vehicle modifications or specialized instruction) driver evaluation and training

Please note: Recreation Funds for 2019 have been expended. All Recreation Grant applications received after 2/8/2019 will be put on a cancellation list.

Awards are granted on the basis of demonstrated need, ability of the Foundation to measurably affect the quality of life of the recipient and the financial need of the applicant. Grants are made contingent upon the assurance of the applicant that the funds will be (or have been) used as specified in the grant application.

Income Guidelines:

Applicants with gross income levels above 125% of the New Hampshire Basic Needs and Livable Wage Scale developed by the UNH Office of Economic Initiative and the North County Council will not be considered for funding.

Pre-Application Information:

All applications must be submitted through the Foundation's online application system.

Applications are reviewed and awards made by the HGF Trustees four times a year on the second Tuesday in January, April, July and October. Applications to be considered must be received by 5:00 PM on the following dates:

Applications for camp tuition or recreational activities are reviewed and awarded on an ongoing basis staring in February. Applications for these grants are accepted beginning January 1 each year; applications submitted early in the year are more likely to be funded as funds are limited and are expended quickly. Any application for recreation funds received prior to January 1 will be rejected and you will have to reapply after January 1. Recreation funds are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. All hippotherapy requests are considered recreational grants, as are all recreational activities not attended and facilitated by a licensed physical, occupational or speech therapist.

At the sole discretion of the trustees, grants may be paid either prior to, or after completion of, the purpose for which the grant was awarded, to either the applicant directly or to a vendor or service provider. Payment generally takes seven to ten days following the receipt of a signed Terms of Award and proper documentation in the form of a paid receipt for reimbursement or invoice to make payment to a vendor or service provider.
