Adult Equipment Grants now available! Apply TODAY
One of the recognized barriers to participation in snowsports is the cost of specialized, adaptive equipment. To reduce this barrier BC Adaptive Snowsports created the Adult Adaptive Equipment Grant Program. Available to adults (19 years of age and older) with cognitive and/or physical disabilities, the program’s goal is to increase the number participants who can affordably access skiing and snowboarding by providing financial assistance to help with the cost of purchasing adaptive equipment.
Who is Eligible? Individual British Columbia adults with a disability (cognitive and/or physical) who are members of BC Adaptive Snowsports and who can demonstrate a need for financial support are eligible. Preference will be given to individuals who have not previously received equipment through this program.
AGE ELIGIBILITY: Eligible applicants must be 19 years of age or older as of September 1, 2016
