Episcopal Charities of Albany Offers Grants for Eye Care

Thanks to a bequest from the estate of Louise W. Austin, Episcopal Charities of Albany is pleased to accept applications involving eye care. In accordance with the terms of the restricted endowment, the income from the will is to be used for the purpose of:

"direct assistance to indigent persons regardless of faith, who are in need of eye care, or who otherwise suffer from eye disorders, and are unable to afford such eye care of necessary related services. Grants shall be limited to eye examinations, the purchase of eye glasses, purchase of special equipment or medication needed by an individual by reason of his or her suffering from eye disease and surgical procedures to restore or maintain normal vision."

Grant awards are limited to a maximum $1,000 per grant and to those residing within the nineteen counties of the Episcopal Diocese of Albany (northeastern New York State.)

An Eye Care sub-committee of Episcopal Charities of Albany has the authority to review and act on eye care applications throughout the calendar year. Regularly scheduled Board meetings for these and other matters are held the first Mondays of the months of March, May, September and November.

Those who feel they may qualify for an eye care grant can apply by contacting the ECA Administrator or writing to Episcopal Charities of Albany, 68 S. Swan Street, Albany, NY 12210, or calling the Administrator, Lay Canon George Marshall at (518) 465 4737 ext. 211.
