SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY SEP 11, 2019

An investment from Manatee Community Foundation has provided startup capital for an expanded autism program at Easterseals Happiness House. The idea arose in response to a grant from the State of Florida, which will award Easterseals funds in excess of $2 million to add early diagnosis of autism and virtual reality for employment for young adults with autism. Startup costs are reimbursed after delivery of services, approximately 3-6 months from the beginning of the grant. The Program Related Investment (PRI) from Manatee Community Foundation of $300,000 will also allow Easterseals to hire staff and begin the program in an efficient and cost-effective way.
