Ontario is investing $2 million over two years through its new Inclusive Community Grants program to strengthen communities and provide local opportunities for older adults and people with disabilities. Municipalities and local organizations can use the funding towards projects such as:
- undertaking local needs assessments to determine gaps in existing supports for seniors and people with disabilities;
- developing action plans and implementing virtual programs;
- retrofitting buildings with ramps and accessible washrooms; and
- installing self-serve kiosks with software that people with vision or hearing loss can use.
Grant applications for the Inclusive Community Grant are open now. The last day to submit applications is on: December 21, 2020.
