We have asked for the maximum amount available - $250,000 a year for 2012-13, 2013-14, and 2014-15. If our application is approved, the money will be used to raise public awareness of disability issues facing Canadians with ME/FM and to encourage discussion about disability and disability services within the ME/FM community.
