The Cystic Dreams Fund provides general financial assistance through assistance grants to individuals and families struggling with the costs associated with cystic fibrosis. Assistance grants are usually issued in the form of direct payments to outstanding bills. An applicant must be the parent or legal guardian of a minor child with cystic fibrosis or an adult with cystic fibrosis.
(We do not fund applications for mortgage, rent, car payments, car repairs or fertility treatments.)
You must submit a complete application following these simple steps:
The Cystic Dreams Fund board members receive copies of all complete applications for consideration and vote to approve or disapprove requests on a monthly basis. Applicants will be contacted, usually by email, with the board's decision. Funds will be dispersed if request was approved per the board's decision.
The process typically takes 4-8 weeks. Please be patient and keep in mind we operate on an all volunteer basis.
Be sure to submit a complete application. Only complete applications will be considered for an assistance grant.
