Bowel And Bladder Grant
The purpose of the SBHAM Bowel and Bladder Grant is to relieve conditions associated with disability by providing funds for incontinence supplies to children and adults affected by spina bifida and hydrocephalus up to $500 once or twice per year
This fund is available to those who live in Manitoba, have spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and/or are caregivers of those who are affected by spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus and are managing bowel and bladder challenges at home. The applicant also must be a member of the Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Manitoba. Applicants are eligible to receive this fund once or twice a year, as per the recommendations of the SBHAM board.
Applicants are to submit their receipts for appropriate expenses (such as the cost of bowel and bladder management) and the attached application form. These expenses are to be submitted by the end of the year. The SBHAM board will make a decision on reimbursement based on need and funds available.
