EOC Promotes Equal Opportunities through Funding Programme
The Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) is to promote equal opportunities through its Community Participation Funding Programme.
The EOC has supported over 750 non-governmental organizations (NGOs), community groups, and schools in the past 14 years to carry out projects that promote public understanding of equal opportunities and the principles and applications of the Sex Discrimination Ordinance, the Disability Discrimination Ordinance, the Family Status Discrimination Ordinance and the Race Discrimination Ordinance through the Community Participation Funding Programme.
The funding programme 2011/12 is now open for application. Projects promoting racial equality/harmony and the Race Discrimination Ordinance, eliminating discrimination on grounds of sex or family status, and those promoting anti-discrimination policies and practices at workplace will be accorded higher priority for funding this year. To be eligible for funding, the applications should reach the EOC either by 15 May 2011 (1st batch) or by 31 July 2011 (2nd batch), and clearly state how the planned activities will promote equal opportunities, and/or foster anti-discriminatory attitudes and behaviors. The maximum funding limit of each project is $50,000.
Interested organizations can contact the EOC Office at 2511-8211 to obtain details of the programme and funding application forms, or visit our homepage at https://www.eoc.org.hk/en/news-and-events/events-and-programmes/eoc-events/community-participation-funding-programme.
