Project Grant Elligibility

The intent of the BC Rehab Project Grant program is to create opportunities for the full participation of people with physical disabilities. BC Rehab is committed to equal opportunities and improving community accessibility throughout the province. We encourage projects that involve multiple community partners, promote universal access, has clearly defined objectives and demonstrate community support.

Our project grants are intended to support initiatives and projects designed to benefit people with disabilities. Some examples of organizations we have supported through our project grant program include the Disabled Independent Gardener Association’s urban gardening program, the Community Recreational Initiative Society’s Adaptive Adventures program and a supported housing development for brain injury survivors in Campbell River.
