Library and Archives Canada has announced that the next round of their federal project funding for heritage is open:

The DHCP provides financial assistance to the Canadian documentary heritage community for activities that:

  • increase access to, and awareness of, Canada’s local documentary heritage organizations and their holdings

Please note that we have made some modifications to the 2019-2020 DHCP Guidelines. Major changes include:

  • New maximum funding amounts for:
    • Small contributions: Now below $25,000 per project for up to two years
    • Large contributions: Now between $25,000 and $50,000 per project, per funding cycle for up to three years
    • Additional support for organizations located in remote areas:
      • small contributions up to $29,999 per project
      • large contributions up to $60,000 per project, per funding year
  • Amendments to the list of eligible organizations to be more inclusive
  • Criteria used to assess the proposals

The deadline for submitting completed application packages is January 8, 2019 before 11:59 pm Eastern Time (UTC-5). LAC will not accept proposals after the deadline.
