Phoenix Grant Application

Please note that the Phoenix Grant Application is only active during November/December of each year and closes in January/February. Award announcements are made in March.

The purpose of Huntsville Rehabilitation Foundation, Inc. dba Phoenix’s Grants to Other Non-Profits Program is to financially support non-profits within the North Alabama community who provide programs and services to individuals with disabilities to improve their quality of life.

Evaluation of proposals and awards will be based on the Phoenix mission of “assisting persons, primarily those with disabilities, to improve the quality of their lives,” with specific emphasis on programs focused on vocational success (including transportation, skill enhancement, and training), personal financial management skills, positive leisure time activities, and access to medical care (specifically for chronic conditions which may include dietary and lifestyle education and access to more healthy food).


Applications accepted between November-December each year. Grant recipients will be selected and notified by the following March. Please complete the following application to be considered.


Phoenix has several programs that provide various services to people with disabilities, none of which cost the individual participant or his/her family anything.  Please visit the Vocational Services page  for more details and to submit an inquiry for more information.

The easiest way is to simply call or email Phoenix at 256-880-0671 or  Tell the receptionist or write in the email that either you, or someone you know wants to inquire about more information on how to obtain Phoenix’s services for a person with a disability.

Phoenix is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.

Phoenix serves all types of vocational disabilities. A vocational disability is any disability (physical, emotional, learning, physiological, etc.) that can impact a person’s ability to get or keep a job. Therefore, each person’s disability has to be evaluated while taking into account their work experience, education, personal resources (do they have a car to get to work, for example) and other factors. All people served by Phoenix have a program specifically designed for their individual situations that will help them maximize their vocational potential and goals.

If you are a potential government or commercial business partner interested in what services or products Phoenix could provide your organization, simply visit the Government Services and/or Manufacturing pages.  From there, you can learn more about Phoenix’s business capabilities as well as submit an inquiry to request more information.

Concerned citizens of the community started Phoenix in 1973 as non-profit corporation. Today, Phoenix is still governed by a group of business, community and professional leaders who serve without compensation. They oversee the policies and programs of the organization and set the long-term goals for Phoenix.

Phoenix is a United Way agency, subject to United Way’s accountability measures. Phoenix has been a member of the Better Business Bureau for many years and annually files appropriate information with the BBB for public review. Phoenix’s programs are accredited by CARF, an international accrediting agency that reviews Phoenix’s programs and compares them to international standards for accountability, performance and ethics. CARF provides a written report of its findings and has given Phoenix the best accreditation period (three years) for more than 24 consecutive years.

Positions are filled based on eligibility, job availability and need. For more information, please call (256) 880-0671 or send an email to Or see our current job openings.
