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. This program offers cost-shared grants to community groups for accessibility related capital improvements.

The grants may cover up to two-thirds of the direct and indirect costs of renovations, installations, and/or equipment. 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.

Who can apply?

  • Registered non-profit society/cooperative in good standing
  • Federally incorporated non-profit organization
  • Nova Scotian Mi’kmaw Councils
  • Municipalities


Applications for the fiscal year 2024-2025 will be accepted until 14 February 2024.
