All nonprofit organizations with a current Internal Revenue Service designation as a 501 C (3) exempt organization, and a current State of Florida Charitable Solicitation Registration number that are providing services to individuals with autism and related disabilities are eligible to apply for a grant. Proposals are due by July 31.

MOSI adds shoe sanitizing
As of June 16, the Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI) in Tampa is utilizing the patented combination of Ozone + UVC technology as part of its safety plan for guests and employees, in combating COVID-19, according to a MOSI news release.
MOSI has placed the PathO3Gen Solutions (patho3gen.com) UVZone shoe sanitizing station at the entrance to the exhibit path to ensure guests not only utilize the technology first-hand (or foot), but also so guests can learn about the technology used in the station, as it was developed in STEM-related careers and research.
The patented technology is proven to be over 110 times more effective against deadly pathogens, and over 24 times more effective at eliminating human coronavirus, than UVC alone.
It eliminates up to 99.999% of the deadliest pathogens, including bacteria and fungi, and leaves zero human coronavirus reside on footwear.
