Welcome to Lyme Connection

Financial Assistance Available for Patients

Lyme Connection received a $25,500 three-year grant grant from The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven to support patients with medical expenses. These funds will be used to assist Connecticut residents in need of financial assistance in the diagnosis and treatment of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases from doctors following the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS) guidelines. Connecticut residents, who fall at or below 85% of the State Median Income Level, receive state or federal assistance are encouraged to apply.

The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven is a philanthropic institution that was established in 1928 as the community’s permanent charitable endowment. Nurse practitioner Elizabeth (Betsey) White was loved throughout the Lyme community for her intelligence, kindness and commitment to supporting the needs of her fellow patients. Applicants must complete the application and submit with supportive documents. Families who are at or below 85% of the State Median Income or participate in state or federal assistance programs should consider applying.
