The CCP accepts applications for funding from persons wishing to appear before the courts in test cases to make arguments that are broader or have a different focus than those presented by the parties to the case, with a view to clarifying rights. Applicants must meet the eligibility criteria and follow the steps in applying for funding.
The following maximum amounts may be granted to applicants:
- motion for leave to intervene: $10,000
- intervention: $40,000
To ensure equal access to CCP funded activities, accessibility funding of up to $5,000 is available for expenses related to accessibility.
Applicants are encouraged to consider applying for accessibility funding, which can cover, for example: interpretation or translation, production of documents in alternate media, travel costs for an attendant, and child care costs.
Requests for accessibility funding must be made in writing and must include: 1) a detailed explanation of the request, and 2) a projected budget for the amount of accessibility funding requested. The decision-making panel has the sole discretion to determine whether circumstances exist that justify accessibility funding and the amount of accessibility funding.
