Acute Spinal Cord Injury Cord Grants
Alinea offers grant support to individuals transitioning into community living, following a period of hospitalisation for significant spinal cord injury or disease. The Acute Spinal Cord Injury Grant provides financial assistance upon first discharge from acute care, to help with the purchase of essential equipment that aids or maintains sustainable rehabilitation.
An extension to the Acute Spinal Cord Injury Grant, Alinea provides further support to people moving back into the community following a period of hospitalisation for significant injury.
People with permanent spinal cord injury moving to independent community accommodation are able to apply for a further $1,000 to assist with the costs of re-establishing themselves in a new home or community accommodation.
To be eligible you must also be a current client with the Organisation.
Maud Zervos Education Grants
The organisation offers education grants to children of parent/s with a disability who are financial members of Alinea.
The Department of Education of WA coordinate the advertising and selection process for Maud Zervos Education Grants. A panel from the Department of Education will conduct the selection process and forward their recommendations to the Executive Director, who will review them and advise the Board accordingly.

Medical and Related Research Grants
Alinea has a firm commitment to research, both in respect of prevention and new methods of treatment. The Organisation recognises that primary medical research is fundamental in determining and evaluating new methods of treatment and prevention of spinal cord injury or disease.
