The Canavan Grant

Helping The Community

Thanks to the vision, hard work and dedication of Representative Christine Canavan (now retired), proud grandmother of an almost 9 year old boy with PKU, and the support of the NECPAD community, the MA Legislature has again supported a Massachusetts Fiscal Year appropriation in the amount of $50,000 – this is the sixth such appropriation since 2009!  In honor of Representative Canavan, NECPAD has respectfully renamed this funding the “Canavan Grant”!  The Canavan Grant will support the costs associated with a budget that NECPAD has proposed to the MA Department of Public Health (DPH) that oversees the allocation of these funds.  NECPAD is responsible for disbursing these funds in accordance with this budget.  PLEASE NOTE: The Canavan Grant began on October 19th and will expire as of June 30th.  NECPAD may only consider requests for reimbursement or new purchases for expenses incurred between those dates.
