NOW OPEN: Enabling Accessibility Fund for Small Projects up to $50,000

Deadline: October 5th, 2012

Hi Funds Fans!  A brief inter-holiday post.  It’s too good to wait!!  The Enabling Accessibility Fund supports community-based projects across Canada that improve accessibility, remove barriers and enable Canadians with disabilities to participate in and contribute to their communities.  The Small Projects Component provides grant funding of up to $50,000 per project to improve the built environment through renovation, construction and retrofitting of buildings; the modification of vehicles for community use; and enhancements to make information and communication technologies more accessible (such as such as audio induction loop systems and screen readers).

Funding for at least 25 percent of the total eligible project costs must come from non-federal government sources.

Deadline: October 5, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

Organizations may apply for funding only when there is an open call for proposals.

Who can apply:

  • not-for-profit organizations
  • small municipalities (with populations under 250 000 according to census data)
  • small private-sector organizations (fewer than 50 employees and under $5 million in gross revenue per year)
  • colleges and universities
  • territorial governments
  • Aboriginal governments
There’s where we found some today, folks!  Remember, if you can’t make use of the information you probably know someone who can so share, share, share…
