2022 Harnett Grant

Thanks to the generous support of the Harnett Family, CNF is able to provide one $1,000 grant to a family with a child with infantile spasms. The grant is intended to help families cover their medical bills not covered by insurance.

Families will be selected based on the eligibility criteria and a randomized selection process. Applications are due October 10th at 8:00pm ET / 5:00pm PT. Before applying, please consult a tax advisor to understand how receipt of this money has tax implications or impacts your government benefits.

Together we will get through this. Together we are all child neurology.

  • W-9 (required)
  • Payment Processing Form (required)
  • Photo Release Agreement (not required)
  • A response is required within one week of notification to remain eligible for an award.

The award will be paid directly to the applicant. Recipients must complete and return the payment processing form and W-9 to the CNF Program Coordinator within one week after award notification. Photo inclusion and the photo release agreement are not required to receive the grant and do not affect eligibility.
