COVID-19 Workspace Adaption Assistance Fund
Health workers need to adapt their workplaces in order to provide care during the pandemic, which can be costly.
The COVID-19 Workspace Adaption Assistance Fund provides a non-repayable contribution toward the cost of implementing a COVID-19 Operational Plan to Prince Edward Island businesses, not-for-profits, and non-governmental organizations that have incurred costs to implement safety measures.

This Fund contributes to costs (retroactive to March 16, 2020) that are directly related to implementing safety measures of a COVID-19 Operational Plan, including but not limited to:
- Physical changes to workplaces specifically for the purpose of protecting employees and customers (examples: plexiglass dividers, new walls or dividers, new entryway systems, construction labour, intercom and communication systems).
- Purchase of equipment (examples: hand sanitizer stations, sterilizing equipment, portable hand wash stations).
- Engineering and design services related to the changes required for the Covid-19 Operational Plan.
- Personal Protective Equipment (examples: gloves, masks, face shields, gowns, hand sanitizer).
- COVID-19 specific signage (examples: directional and physical distancing signs, floor decals, and health and wellness signs).

Maximum Fund contribution of $2,000 (based on 75% of Eligible Project Costs).
One application per business location will be accepted.
