Financial support

HEAL may be able to provide modest financial support for travel and lodging for those affiliated with organizations that are unable to pay for travel. If you need financial support, please fill out the financial aid request form.* 

*Due to budget constraints, we are prioritizing financial aid requests for individuals who would like to attend the Summit, but find that cost is a prohibitive factor. If your organization has the capacity to subsidize your travel and lodging costs, please forgo filling out a financial aid request.
