Community Funding and Awards

Community ACCESS-Ability Program

The Community ACCESS-Ability Program reflects the Government of Nova Scotia's commitment to persons with disabilities by providing equal opportunity and improved access to community facilities.

The sponsoring organization must raise at least one-third of the funding from other sources. Organizations can receive funding for one project per year under the program.
