Rick Hansen Foundation - Quality of Life Program Grants
The Rick Hansen Foundation presents the Quality of Life Program with grant opportunities for indivduals or communities to improve the lives of people with physical disabilities, such as spinal cord injuries (SCI).
Canadians with SCI and other related disabilities experience a number of barriers to their full participation in everyday life activities. In its quest to improve the quality of life for those people living with physical disabilities including SCI, the Rick Hansen Foundation (RHF) established a Quality of Life Program (the Program) in 2003 with the following purpose:
- to encourage the independent and healthy living of those with SCI and other related disabilities by removing and/or reducing social and physical barriers to participation in all aspects of community life, and
- to encourage and promote, as well as remove barriers to, participation by persons with disabilities in publicly available sporting activities that promote health.
Through the Program, grants are provided to support individual and community based projects across Canada that improve accessibility, remove barriers, and enable Canadians with physical disabilities including SCI to participate in and contribute to their community.
