This past December CLBC announced that there was grant money available to Self Advocate groups from across the Province to run a project to help keep Advocates connected. It was voted on by the SAOR that we should apply for the grant. We worked hard on our application and sent it in to CLBC by the deadline. The application was accepted, and we moved on to the next step. We then had a zoom interview with Jessica and Brianne from CLBC to give them more information on our ideas for the grant money. The week before Christmas we received some great news, we were one of the groups chosen to receive grant money and put our ideas into action!
