The Euro-Peds Foundation awards treatment grants to children who are receiving intensive
physical therapy at Euro-Peds Intensive Pediatric Physical Therapy Clinic in Pontiac, MI.
If your child has been approved to attend the Euro-Peds Program and you would like to
apply for a treatment grant, download the grant application on our site.
Many children travel with their families from out-of-state to attend Euro-Peds for sessions
that last 2-4 weeks. Airfare, gas, hotel and other travel expenses are not typically covered
by insurance. EPF has established this program to help families with out-of-pocket lodging
expenses to help ease the financial burden.

At times, requests for grants may exceed the funds available through the Treatment & Travel
grants. EPF is committed to helping every child so we may choose to create an Adopt A Euro-
Kid fundraising page. After reviewing the stories and needs of our Adopt A Euro-Kids,
supporters may choose to donate to a specific child's Euro-Peds session.
