Life Enrichment Awards Program (LEAP)
The Life Enrichment Awards Program (LEAP) is intended to enrich the lives of youth and young adults with disabilities and chronic illnesses who are actively engaged in a transition process . LEAP provides goods and services directly linked to transition planning and implementation, such as youth development services, tools for transition, and support services. These items are not usually available from public service and government agencies, and not covered by Medicaid or private insurance. Funds may be used for a variety of services not considered "medically necessary."

- Therapeutic Equipment
- College Tuition
- Business Attire

As a life enrichment program, LEAP does not fund "life necessity" good and services (food, clothing, medicine, direct medical services, housing, transportation). Eligible applicants must be between 14-26 years old, have a disability, be actively engaged in a transition process, and may not have received a LEAP grant within the past three years from any LEAP partner organization.
