Grant Feature: Enabling Accessibility Fund (EAF)

About The Grant

The Enability Accessibility Fund offers up to $1,000,000 for projects to improve accessibility and safety for persons with disabilities. This funding supports both small projects in workplaces and mid-sized projects in community spaces. The grant helps create more inclusive environments, making it easier for people with disabilities to work and access services.

Program Overview 

The Enability Accessibility Fund is designed to enhance accessibility and safety for persons with disabilities through targeted funding for small and mid-sized projects.

The small projects component provides grant funding of up to $200,000 per project. This component focuses on small-scale construction and communication technology projects that improve accessibility in communities and workplaces. Examples of eligible projects include building ramps, accessible doors, and accessible washrooms, installing screen reader devices and hearing loop systems, constructing universally designed offices, and creating accessible playgrounds.

The mid-sized projects component offers contribution funding of up to $3 million per project. This component supports larger construction projects for facilities that provide programs and services to include persons with disabilities in their communities and/or the labour market. Eligible projects may involve constructing, renovating, or expanding centres or hubs that offer programming and services for persons with disabilities in their communities.

Application Window

The intake for the Enability Accessibility Fund is now open until July 23, 2024. All projects must be located in facilities where persons with disabilities can work (small projects component) or in community spaces where services are or will be available for persons with disabilities (mid-sized projects component).
