Living with a chronic illness such as multiple sclerosis can be unpredictable and costly. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society provides direct support and resources to help alleviate some of the financial burden people with MS may experience.
The Greater New England Chapter’s Financial Assistance Program aims to support independence, safety, health, and quality of life for people living with MS. We support needs in the following categories: air conditioners; transportation to medical appointments; emergency needs; short-term counseling; home and auto modifications; medical equipment; and home and respite care. We also help to identify other potential funding sources.
Eligibility: Any person diagnosed with MS, living in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, or Vermont, may apply for financial assistance. A person is eligible to receive financial assistance from the Greater New England Chapter once per year. All applications must be approved before the purchase of goods and/or services. We are unable to provide reimbursement for items or services already purchased. To learn more or to receive an application, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some requests for funding are beyond the scope of the Chapter’s program. The Chapter maintains close relationships with other organizations and community agencies in order to secure additional funding for services whenever possible. If community resources are available, we will help to connect & refer you to those first. Here are current community partners:
Multiple Sclerosis Association of America
