Active Military Grant

During the season of reflecting on what we are most thankful for, it is important to thank those who protect and serve our nation. At Food Allergy Institute, we are choosing to give thanks to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, our men, and women of service. This giving season, Dr. Inderpal Randhawa, Founder and Chief Medical Officer of TPIRC and Food Allergy Institute, has made it a point to thank and give back to our active military families going through our Tolerance Induction Program™ (TIP).

Food Allergy Institute will be awarding grants to families that have an active military parent or legal guardian. We believe giving back to those who serve to protect our freedom deserves to be recognized. Helping the children of active military families achieve food freedom through our Tolerance Induction Program™ (TIP) is a way we are giving back to families that gave us everything.

Active Military Grant Guidelines for Financial Assistance

What is the Active Military Grant?

Our Active Military Grant seeks to give thanks to those who have served our country and their families. We are thanking these families by offering financial assistance in their child’s treatment of severe food allergies through our Tolerance Induction Program™ (TIP).

How We Work

We use effective, innovative approaches to the treatment of rare diseases like food anaphylaxis to empower families, build partnerships, and expand the capacity of Southern California Food Allergy Institute to create real, lasting change.

Open Grants

Through seed funding by TPIRC and Food Allergy Institute Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Inderpal Randhawa, and our generous supporters we have raised enough to fund our Active Military Grant Fund. This fund is designed to provide financial assistance to active military families with children suffering from food anaphylaxis.


  • Have a child under 18 years who suffer from severe food allergies*
  • The child has a parent/caretaker that is an active military member
  • Verification of active service: Common Access Card (CAC)
  • Financial assistance to treat your child’s food allergies
  • A resident of the United States
  • Able to travel to TPIRC’s Food Allergy Institute Clinic in Long Beach, CA regularly for appointments
  • Able to commit to the length of treatment in TIP™ (duration varies and is approximately 18-24 months)**
  • Open to current, waitlist, and future patients (remission patients not eligible)

*Acceptance of the grant is also contingent on the patient being medically cleared as a candidate for Tolerance Induction Program™.
**Length of treatment is determined after a treatment plan has been developed.
