MP SCHMALE ENCOURAGING YOUTH TO HELP MAKE THEIR COMMUNITIES MORE ACCESSIBLE

July 27, 2018

LINDSAY: Local MP Jamie Schmale is calling on youth leaders from Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock who might be interesting in making a difference in their community by working with eligible organizations to submit project proposals under the Enabling Accessibility Fund’s (EAF) Youth Innovation Component.

Youth interested in participating are required to identify accessibility barriers in public places or workplaces within their immediate and/or surrounding communities, and seek out interested organizations willing to work with them to develop an EAF accessibility project funding proposal.

Not-for-profit organizations, for profit organizations (with up to 99 full-time equivalent employees), small municipalities (with a population under 125,000), Indigenous organizations (including band councils, tribal councils and self-government entities) and territorial governments are eligible to apply for project funding of up to $10,000.

Interested youth between the ages of 15 and 30 years of age can apply https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/funding/enabling-accessibility-fund-youth-innovation.html

The call for expressions of interest for youth leaders will close on September 21, 2018.
