Province announces more funding for accessibility and inclusion projects

Kicking off AccessAbility Week, Minister of Social Development and Poverty Reduction Shane Simpson announced last week that the provincial government will, for the third year in a row, provide funding to community projects that improve accessibility and inclusion. The grants will be disbursed by Disability Alliance BC.

From the Province’s news release:

“Disability Alliance BC is thrilled to be distributing another round of grants to community organizations across B.C. to promote accessibility and inclusion in the province,” said Justina Loh, executive director of DABC. “In the past two years, we have seen some very innovative and creative projects come to life, and we have seen the number of people impacted by these community projects. We look forward to supporting more organizations across the province and hope that new organizations apply for funding this year.”
