OTTAWA- Jim Eglinski, Member of Parliament for Yellowhead, is reminding residents that the federal government has opened a call for concepts (CFC) for mid-sized projects under the Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF) through Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC).
The call is open to not-for-profit and Indigenous organizations, municipalities and territorial governments.
The EAF mid-sized CFC provides contribution funding to organizations for projects that help improve and make Canadian facilities and venues more accessible for people with disabilities.
As a result of the projects, eligible organizations must offer or plan to offer services and programs that support the social and labour market integration needs of people with disabilities.
“This call for proposals provides an important opportunity to make sure that all residents in our riding of Yellowhead, regardless of their abilities, feel welcome in their workplaces and communities. That is why I strongly encourage all eligible organizations to submit a proposal for this funding,” concluded MP Eglinski.
Financial contributions between $350,000 and $1 million will be provided through the current CFC for each successful retrofit, renovation or construction project.
The deadline to apply is May 24.
