Is the Foundation a nonprofit organization?  Yes, Horses and Humans Research Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

I am looking for funding for a therapeutic riding program. Can I apply for a grant from HHRF?   HHRF does not fund general  activities programming. Research grants are only available for basic research and clinical studies.

Do you only fund hippotherapy or will you consider our [equine facilitated mental health, equine-assisted growth and learning, etc] research project as well?   We will consider any projects related to equine-assisted activities. Please note our guidelines and priorities in the Research Section.

I wrote to HHRF. When will I hear back?

HHRF will acknowledge receipt of Letters of Intent by postal or email within one week, but may take up to two months to respond with the formal recommendation to apply.
