Music Therapy for All

Fort Worth Music Therapy Fund increases access to music therapy in Texas. Through our programs, we support:
  • music therapy clients
  • music therapy students
  • and board-certified music therapists

In the state of Texas

Music therapy services are funded in a few ways:

01. Health Insurance

Health insurance companies occasionally cover music therapy. When covered, it is almost always considered out of network. This means that individuals often have to meet high deductible costs before even beginning the fight for coverage.

02. Medicaid Waivers

Texas Health and Human Services currently covers music therapy services under two Medicaid waivers: CLASS, for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and YES, for youth with emotional and behavioral needs.


Many wait more than a decade to receive Class waiver services

03. Out-of-Pocket Pay

Because insurance coverage is difficult to obtain and waivers have long interest lists, many people are forced to pay out of pocket for their services. This causes financial strain that often forces families to choose between therapies.


Fort Worth Music Therapy Fund

Fort Worth Music Therapy Fund was founded to support individuals, families, and facilities so that they do not fall between these funding gaps.

Music Therapy Grants are awarded to alleviate the financial burden of paying for private music therapy services out of pocket.

Intern Scholarships are awarded to assist with housing, travel, and related costs of living for music therapy interns in Texas.


To apply for a Music Therapy Grant, begin by connecting with a board-certified music therapist in your area. Music therapists must be CBMT credentialed. For more information, click here.



Applications are accepted year-round. Music Therapy Grants are awarded multiple times per year.


If awarded a Music Therapy Grant, Fort Worth Music Therapy Fund will confirm that you and your board-certified music therapist are ready to begin treatment!. Congratulations!
