CIF EDUCATION AND LEISURE FUND
This project provides funding of up to $400.00 to mental health consumers for education and leisure courses or activities. Recipients can take more than one course/activity if the cost is less than $400.00 and must be willing to pay the difference if the cost exceeds $400.00.
Individuals are eligible to receive funding once every two years. Applicants must be a resident of Vancouver and be receiving mental health services in Vancouver.
The Education and Leisure Fund is open two times a year. Applications are randomly selected in a draw done at the Consumer Initiative Fund offices.
Applications will be made available here on June 16, 2014 for the next draw to be held Tuesday, July 15, 2014.
Personal development, life style enhancement, vocational training, education and well-being are key components of recovery. The goal of this fund is to provide opportunities for individuals to take courses they would not otherwise be able to access and to build capacity.
