Community Participation Funding Programme on Equal Opportunities 2021/2022


Community Participation Funding Programme on EO 2019/2020

The programme aims at encouraging eligible organisations to carry out projects which promote public understanding of equal opportunities. It is hoped that the funded projects would foster anti-discriminatory attitudes and encourage members of the public to put aside their prejudices, and support and apply the principles of equal opportunities in everyday life. Funded projects should meet at least one of the following objectives:

  • promoting the principles and applications of the Sex Discrimination Ordinance, Disability Discrimination Ordinance, Family Status Discrimination Ordinance and Race Discrimination Ordinance
  • promoting equal opportunities between women and men, between persons with and without a disability, and irrespective of their family status and race
  • eliminating discrimination on the grounds of sex, marital status, pregnancy, breastfeeding, disability, family status and race
  • eliminating sexual harassment, breastfeeding harassment and harassment and vilification on the ground of disability and race
