BC Rehab Community Partnerships InitiativeBC Rehab Foundation
The intent of the BC Rehab Community Partnerships Initiative is to increase accessibility in BC communities and create opportunities for the full participation of people with physical disabilities. BC Rehab is committed to equal opportunities and improving community inclusion in the Province of BC. We encourage projects that involve multiple community partners, promote universal access and demonstrate community support.
In 2012, BC Rehab is offering three grants of up to $10,000 to improve community accessibility in the Province of BC.
A community-based project is one that benefits a particular community by improving accessibility and increases opportunities for people with physical disabilities living in BC. Our review committee will consider a range of grant requests and project proposals. Examples of areas where BC Rehab will consider granting funding range and could include retrofitting a building, upgrading existing facilities to improve access, community-based programming, public space projects(e.g. accessible urban gardens) and equipment acquisitions to improve universal public access (e.g. ramps, lifts, etc).
Local governments are eligible to apply if undertaking projects that will provide universal public accessibility or to upgrade existing facilities in order to make them fully accessible.
Applications will be accepted until June 18, 2012.
Applications can be sent by fax, e-mail or regular mail to the BC Rehab office. Please send to the attention of Pamela MacDonald, Manager of Projects and Communications.
