The Canadian Paralympic Committee is now Accepting Applications for its Para-Equipment Fund!
Does your club need new adapted sport equipment? We are awarding grants of up to $5,000 to eligible clubs, for a total of $200,000 in grants for both summer and winter sports.
The Para-Equipment Fund (PEF) is a grassroots initiative that aims to assist local and provincial organizations in delivering first contact programming. It is designed to facilitate the participation of an increased number of people with a disability in Para-sport by expanding the availability of introductory-based equipment, particularly for first contact and equipment loan programs.
Apply before January 5, 2011 to take advantage of this great opportunity to expand or start your program!
The PEF is made possible through financial contributions from Sport Canada, Petro-Canada and the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC).
