The Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau is inviting applications for the Equal Opportunities (Sexual Orientation) Funding Scheme 2012-13.
"The funding scheme was launched in 1998 and has since been running on an annual basis. The objective of the scheme is to provide funding support to worthwhile community projects that aim to promote equal opportunities on grounds of sexual orientation or gender identity, or seek to provide support services for sexual minorities," a spokesman for the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau said today (April 30).
Application forms are available at all Public Enquiry Service Centres of the Home Affairs Department. The forms can also be downloaded from the bureau website at www.cmab.gov.hk/en/issues/equalsdofs_sex.htm . The deadline for applications is May 30.
A briefing session will be held on May 9 at Conference Room, 13/F, East Wing, Central Government Offices, 2 Tim Mei Avenue, Tamar, Hong Kong, to brief interested parties on the scope and operation of the funding scheme.
For enquiries, please contact 2810 3205.
