Improve access to programs and services for persons with disabilities in your community
The Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) provides funding for projects that make communities and workplaces more accessible for persons with disabilities. EAF creates more opportunities for persons with disabilities to:
- take part in community activities, programs and services
- access employment
This Call for Proposals (CFP) will provide up to $57,950,000 in funding in fiscal year 2022 to 2023 to support a minimum of 580 accessibility projects, and up to $6,500,000 to support a minimum of 65 Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) projects.
Through the Government of Canada’s 2022 CFP under the EAF Small projects component, not-for-profit, for profit, Indigenous organizations, municipalities and territorial governments could receive up to $100,000 for the retrofit, renovation or new construction of accessible facilities or venues.
Until November 1, 2022, Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) is accepting applications for projects that help improve and make facilities in Canadian communities and workplaces more accessible for persons with disabilities.
