MO Better was established to help enhance the quality of life of Missourians with physical disabilities by carrying out grant making activities to aid in purchasing items to assist in daily living, particularly items related to technology, transportation and mobility. We provide help when no other funding source is available, or when other funding sources are not adequate to cover the costs of the assistive technology/equipment, mobility aides and access modifications.
MO Better provides assistance in the form of gifts and grants ranging from $500 – $15,000 through a grant application submission and approval system. We only pay reputable vendors directly. We DO NOT provide funding to the grant recipient or reimburse for equipment already purchased. Average gift is between $2,000-$3,000. These are not, necessarily, one time grants. Recipients who have received a grant from the MO Better Foundation, may apply for after 4 grant cycles (restrictions apply).
