Funding for Canadian history promotion

Funding for historyHi Funds Fans!  The post is a bit late today but better late than never, right?

The Government of Canada announced a series of new measures to promote Canadian history. This includes the Canada Book Fund, which will encourage collective projects with a dedicated focus on promoting Canadian history titles through the program’s Support for Organizations stream.

Eligible projects could include targeted marketing campaigns, online discoverability platforms, promotion linked to awards for history titles, etc.

For 2013-2014, a total amount of up to $100,000 will be available for history-related projects. This amount will increase to $200,000 in subsequent years. Eligible projects could receive up to 75% of their eligible expenses.

To allow time for the preparation of applications, the deadline for 2013-2014 history-related funding is August 9, 2013.
