Funding of $10,000 to $40,000 per project will be disbursed to a maximum of $450,000.
Projects must have clear, tangible, measurable outputs and outcomes that promote accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. Convening or start-up projects are eligible but must have reportable, measurable outcomes.
The Accessibility Projects must advance at least one of the following specific objectives for British Columbians with disabilities: Accessible employment; Accessible emergency planning and response; Accessible arts, culture and tourism; Accessible sports and recreation; Accessible education and learning; Accessible community participation.
Eligible organizations must be BC-based not-for-profit organizations that operate primarily for community benefit and whose services are open to the public and not restricted to the organization’s membership.
Organizations do not need to be a registered charity but must have a democratically elected volunteer Board chosen by its membership.
National or international organizations may be eligible, but only if they have a base of operations in BC and sufficient capacity to deliver services in BC. Governmental organizations, including municipalities, are ineligible for funding.
Organizations that have a real or perceived conflict of interest with DABC or organizations who have previously been awarded an Accessibility Grant are also ineligible.
