Play Grants is a new signature program for TTF, in partnership with the Children’s Hospital Association. Undergoing complicated medical procedures, facing life-threatening illnesses and injuries, and feeling isolated and helpless are common experiences for children and their families in healthcare settings. Through the work and play of child life professionals, play therapists and pediatric health care providers, TTF hopes to help hospital professionals alleviate some of these stressors.
This new program will offer more than 220 children’s hospitals across the country the opportunity to request grant funding. The first round of grant decisions were made in May 2021.
