Inclusion Grants are established to enhance the inclusion of persons with disabilities and to enable greater participation in community opportunities through the removal of barriers.
This is achieved by providing funding to eligible non-profit, community-based organizations to create or improve the accessibility of the built environment*. Inclusion Grants also offer funding to eligible non-profit, community-based organizations to provide disability-related accommodations to support participation in their events and meetings, such as sign language interpretation; Real time captioning; and audio support for assistive listening devices.
*Built environment includes all person-made surroundings that provide the setting for human activity. Examples are buildings and facilities, playgrounds, sidewalks and boardwalks.
Accessibility grants provide up to $25,000 to retrofit the built environment. Disability-related accommodations grants provide up to $5000 to support participation.
Costs for renovations, equipment and/ or disability-related accommodations incurred prior to the date of the application approval are NOT eligible for funding.
