Autism Speaks is currently working on a project to empower adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder to move out of their family home and live as independently as possible, while remaining connected to the larger community. Currently, more than 3 million individuals in the U.S. are living with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and around 500,000 of these individuals will be entering adulthood over the next ten years.

- For individuals who require 24/7 support
- For individuals who require daily support
- For individuals who require weekly support
Prize details: The best solution in each of these categories will receive a $50,000 USD prize. The total prize purse is $150,000 USD.
