Applications invited for Equal Opportunities (Sexual Orientation) Funding Scheme

     The Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau (CMAB) is inviting applications for the Equal Opportunities (Sexual Orientation) Funding Scheme 2013-14.

     "The funding scheme was first 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 for people of different sexual orientation or transgendered persons, or seek to provide support services for sexual minorities," a spokesman for the CMAB said today (April 3).

     Application forms are available at all Public Enquiry Service Centres of the Home Affairs Department. The form can also be downloaded from the CMAB website at www.cmab.gov.hk/en/issues/equalsdofs_sex.htm. The deadline for applications is May 3.

     A briefing session will be held on April 10 in the 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 call 2810 3205.
