Launch of a call for proposals under the newly modernized Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) small projects component.

The call for proposals for the EAF small projects component provides funding to organizations for small-scale construction, renovation or retrofit projects that enable persons with disabilities to live and work in more inclusive and accessible communities.

Organizations have until July 13, 2020, to apply by visiting canada.ca/accessibility-fund.
