Funding to help make curling more accessible

Curling centres can take advantage of a new fund to help them make their facilities more accessible.
Human Resources and Skills Development Canada’s “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 Project” component of the fund is now accepting applications, and provides grants of up to $50,000 per project to construct, renovate or retrofit building.

The funding can also be used to modify vehicles for community use or enhance information and communication technologies to make them more accessible.

The application deadline is October 5, 2012 at 8:59 pm Pacific Standard Time.

Full details are available on the website and include the application form and program guidelines. Applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines before completing the application.

Visit http://www.hrsdc.gc.ca/eng/disability_issues/eaf/cfp/index.shtml for information or to apply.

If you have additional questions about the funding, please contact HRSDC by email at:
ac.cg.ccdhr-cdsrhnull@fae-apf or through their toll free numbers: 1-866-268-2502 or TTY: 1 800 926-9105.
