At the Annual General Meeting held in Melbourne in April 2005 the committee of management presented a proposal to develop a funding scheme which could offer financial assistance to individuals and families affected by Mucopolysaccharidoses, and to allow a fair and equitable way to support families attending the biannual National conferences.
This received a positive response and the Board agreed and has allowed the Committee to develop this initiative. We are proud to announce The MPS Assistance Program referred to as MAP is now ready.
Grants can be applied for anywhere up to a maximum of $500. Examples of potentially eligible costs are Special Equipment, medical aids, education, counselling and respite.
