2020 DDA Scholarships OPEN!

We are so excited to announce that we have received a grant from Jordan Fund for the second year! This will allow us to offer scholarships to cover the cost difference for rider’s with DDA/DSHS funding.

The payment structure for our services does not adequately cover our cost and therefore, we have been unable to accept riders with DDA/DSHS funding. This grant has given us the opportunity to cover that gap and allow us to accept riders!

Last year worked out very well, so we have decided that we will do the same structure and divide the grant to give three different riders a scholarship for ten lessons each. To qualify for this scholarship you must have funding and available hours. Your case manager will have to confirm this before any scholarship money is used. As well, the Jordan Fund requires that this grant money be used for children with ‘permanent and significant’ disabilities.

BUT WAIT! This #GivingTuesday we were able to raise $560! That means, we are able to offer a FOURTH scholarship this year! We want to send a huge thank you to everyone who donated and shared our fundraiser.

Applications will be closing on Sunday, December 29th.
