INCLUSIVE RECREATION ACTIVITY FUND
The Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund, formally the Provincial Recreation Access Fund, exists to provide support and facilitate direct participation for those with disabilities. It is our intention to reduce or eliminate barriers that hinder participation. This re-imagined fund can help cover the costs of registration fees, transportation costs, and equipment needs of individuals who would not have been able to take part in physical activities without this program. New for 2015, a portion of the overall fund will be used as a one- time annual grant. This grant can be applied for via a municipality or organization and go towards inclusive recreation programming or inclusive upgrading of a facility.
For Individuals: (Maximum Request: $250) – Three Funding Periods
Individuals with a disability can apply for funding from the Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund to help cover activity related expenses. Want to join a gym, or aqua size class? We can help with registration fees. Want to attend a summer camp or after school program? We can pay for that as well! We’ll even help you with some of your equipment and transportation needs too. In fact, we can cover expenses for just about anything, as long as the activity is “ACTIVE”, and not just a “one-time thing”. Funding Deadlines: July 24, 2015, October 2nd, 2015 and January 15th, 2016
For Municipalities: (Maximum Request: $2500) – Annually
Municipalities or organizations that provide recreation services can apply for funding from the Inclusive Recreation Activity Fund to help cover inclusive programming or facility related expenses. Want to offer a parallel sport program in your recreation programs, or add specialized equipment to your facility? We can help with these costs. Want to provide a ramp or upgrade your washrooms to include wheelchair access? We can cover expenses for just about anything, as long as the program or facility will be part of the recreation delivery system and used to make those individuals with a disability more “ACTIVE”. Funding Deadline: July 24, 2015 – If funding remains, additional funding will be available for the October 2nd, 2015 and January 15th, 2016 periods.
Municipalities/organizations must provide a letter of intent with your application detailing how these funds will be used and the benefit to your community/organization.
