Assistance for Victims and Survivors of Crime with Disabilities

Program Summary

The purpose of this call for proposals is to help address gaps where there is limited support and services, awareness raising, or research to benefit victims and survivors of crime with disability. Funding will be available to increase capacity where services already exist to support this vulnerable group; however, preference will be given to projects that help to address gaps.

Eligible Recipients

  • not-for-profit non-governmental organizations, including shelters, sexual assault centres, and other victim service organizations;
  • community organizations who work with persons with disabilities;
  • educational institutions;
  • a municipal or regional government or agency; and
  • bands and tribal councils and self-governing First Nations who are working to provide services and assistance to victims of crime in Indigenous communities.
