There are times when a simple change can make a world of difference in someone's life. A helping hand can brighten a dim outlook, and that is the goal of the Brighter Tomorrow Grant program. The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF) will begin accepting applications for a 2003 Brighter Tomorrow Grant on July 1 and will receive them until October 1. Recipients of the annual grants will be notified in December. The Brighter Tomorrow Grant is an award of up to $1000 to provide goods or services that will help improve the quality of life of someone with MS. Applicants write an essay describing what would enable them to have a better quality of life. In past years, the program has provided items for improved daily life such as appliances, personal items, car repairs and home modifications. Education and improved health and well-being were also encouraged through the presentation of exercise equipment and classes, hobby supplies and financial assistance for educational purposes. Recipients desiring greater independence received wheelchairs, ramps, and other assistive technology equipment.

To receive an application for the 3rd annual Brighter Tomorrow Grant, contact the MSF at 1-888-MSFOCUS (673-6287) or visit  The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of those diagnosed with MS.
