MLA Rick Glumac says non-profit grants will support accessibility

Posted in:

New Democrat MLA Rick Glumac says a grant of $40,000 for a local non-profit will support projects that advance accessibility and inclusion in the community.

“The work that organizations like Kinsight do is incredibly valuable,” said Rick Glumac, MLA for Port Moody-Coquitlam. “The funding they are receiving will support inclusion and assist their efforts in helping so many people in our community.”

In Port Moody, Kinsight will be receiving $40,000 for the Real Talk: Building 2SLGBTQIA+ Community Project.

The local investment is part of nearly $450,000 in grants being provided to 12 non-profits across B.C. for projects that reduce barriers and showcase solutions for an accessible province.

The intake for this round of grants opened in August of this year, and invited local projects that focused on employment, emergency planning and response, arts, culture and tourism, sports and recreation, and more.

Since 2018, the New Democrat government has granted nearly $2.25 million to 72 non-profits for accessibility projects. These grants are administered by Disability Alliance BC, a non-profit that assists and supports people with disabilities.
