Patient Education Grant Request

Please see below for instructions on how to submit a request for support of live educational events or printed materials (fact sheets, binders, etc) produced for patients. Please note: this should not be used for programs with a healthcare provider or allied healthcare provider (ie, social workers, case managers, treatment educators) audience or for activities that provide CME/CE credits. Patient education grants are for activities targeting PATIENTS or the public only.

Please note: For patient education programs, content related to Janssen Therapeutics products must be within FDA-approved labeling. Package inserts can be accessed at

Requirements for Registration

All applicants are required to register within the grant management system prior to submitting a request for funding.

NOTE: Use of Third Parties generally pertains to organizations submitting requests for CME/CE-certified activites; however, if an organization requesting a Patient Education grant is partnering with another organization that is providing content, they should identify the Third Party within the system where appropriate. Third Parties will also be invited to register. Applicants may identify Third Parties at the time of registration or during the application process.

A THIRD PARTY is an entity that contributes to content development, certifies the activity for non-physician audiences (for certified activities only), or is the requesting organization’s designated payee. Organizations that provide only logistics assistance are not considered Third Parties within the system and are not required to register.

Please see the FAQs for specific details about the registration process and eligibility.
