Funding announcement

The funding priorities for CO&I will continue to support innovative projects to improve independence for individuals with spinal cord injury. The six areas of emphasis will also remain the same: Arts, Sports and Recreation, Assistive Technology, Education, Employment, Independent Living and Rehabilitation. “Education” here is defined as a means to promote the return to school/university following injury, education readiness, literacy interventions, GED courses and tutoring programs. Other educational activities used as a tool to advance employment, independent living or rehabilitation will reside in these respective areas of CO&I.
