New England Disabled Sports
This grant will help to support the New England Disabled Sports Fishing Program. Specifically, The NE Disabled Sports Fishing program will provide a safe environment for Veterans with paralysis to fish off-shore from an adapted boat, using equipment designed to allow individuals the maximum amount of independence. Grant funds will help to underwrite the purchase of two Lindgren and Pitman S-1200 Electric Reel. This equipment, which will remain the property of the program, is essential for individuals with paralysis to reel in and “land” their own fish. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award # 1U59DD000338.)
