Call for applications: Support Fund for Accessibility Costs (Pilot Project)

What are accessibility costs?

Accessibility costs refer to costs that certain individuals, specifically those with visible or invisible disabilities or those who are part of the Deaf community, must pay to take advantage, in the same way as others do, of the services and programs offered by an institution or to create, produce or disseminate their art. Reimbursement of part of these costs by the Conseil des arts de Montréal may serve as a way to offset the financial disadvantage resulting from norms that hinder access.

The support fund provides:

financial support to submit a funding application

financial support for accessibility costs for a project that receives funding through the General Funding Program

Application deadline:

The deadline to apply for support for accessibility costs is the same as that for the program being applied to.

For organizations receiving operating grants or project grants for 2021 or receiving funding in response to the August 31, 2020 call, the deadlines for applying for support for accessibility costs are December 1st, 2020, March 8th, 2021 and September 1st, 2021.
