Documentary Heritage Communities Program 2019-2020

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) have launched the Documentary Heritage Communities Program 2019-2020 funding cycle.

For this fifth call for proposals changes will allow for greater flexibilities for projects financed through small contributions and encourage organizations to pursue projects by collaborating with other key members of the community.

The major changes include:

New maximum funding amounts for:

Small contributions: Now below $25,000 per project for up to two years; and
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 (specific mention of “Indigenous organizations” and “Indigenous government organizations”) and flexible (“organizations with an archival component” instead of previously “museums with an archival component”). That would include genealogical societies.
