Financial Assistance

The Alabama Kidney Foundation’s two Financial Assistance Programs provide kidney patients with much needed help during difficult times.

    1. Daily Living Needs (DLN)

Provides assistance to help patients meet basic daily living expenses. 

2. The AL Transportation Assistance Program (ATAP)

Provides transportation assistance to patients who need help with the high cost of travel to dialysis treatments and transplant-related appointments.

Income guidelines for DLN and ATAP are as follows:

Single person household – $1,150

Multi-person household – $1,350

Social workers at the patient’s dialysis or transplant clinic must submit a request for assistance on behalf of their patient. Applications are done electronically at
