    NOW OPEN: New Building Canada Fund for Small Communities 

    new buildig canada planHey Funds Fans!  This is a serious fund.  I should also note that this funding package appears to group a bunch of previously individually funded programs into a single-source, competitive process.  My inner skeptic says that the “New Building Canada Plan” is a hokey bunch o’ marketing crap that really means “The costs of government in this country is so high that we are going to take from small communities so that we don’t have to change our incredibly wasteful processes.” Just a guess. #CanadianSenate 

    NEW BUILDING CANADA FUND – SMALL COMMUNITIES: Canada and British Columbia governments are investing up to $218 million under the New Building Canada Fund – Small Communities Fund (NBCF-SCF) Program to support infrastructure projects in communities with a population of less than 100,000 people. Deadline: February 18th, 2015.  Grants from $25,000+.

    Applications for funding will be evaluated on the extent to which the project meets the following program objectives:

    • economic growth;
    • a clean environment; and
    • building stronger communities.

    ELIGIBLE APPLICANTS: (municipalities, Band Councils, private entities including NGO’s)

    • A municipal or regional government established by or under British Columbia legislation;
    • A provincial entity or public sector body (e.g., a department, corporation or agency) that provides municipal-type infrastructure services to communities, established under British Columbia legislation;
    • A band council within the meaning of section 2 of the Indian Act; or a government or authority established pursuant to a Self-Government Agreement or a Comprehensive Land Claim Agreement between Her Majesty the Queen in right of Canada and an Aboriginal people of Canada, that has been approved, given effect and declared valid by federal legislation.
    • A private sector body, including for-profit organizations and not-for-profit organizations, whose application is supported by a municipal or regional government referred to above by way of a resolution from the municipal council or regional government board.

    The following are eligible project categories:

    • Brownfield Redevelopment
    • Connectivity and Broadband

    Attn: Health and Social Development practitioners – $50,000 for intervention strategies 

    Intervention funding

    Hi Funds Fans!  If you work with children, please share this post far and wide.

    Data for Life Prize invites applicants to submit a successful but under-recognized life-saving intervention for children under five that deserves more rigorous study. Two winners will receive $50,000 each to fund meticulous, independent, year-long field studies of their chosen intervention.  Deadline: June 18th, 2014.

    Who can apply?
    Anyone – any organization or person can apply. The Prize is open to anyone who is in a position to save children’s lives but lacks the means to quantitatively assess the impact of their work. Practitioners fighting to reduce child mortality as well as researchers in this area are encouraged to apply for the Data for Life Prize.

    The goal of the Data For Life Prize is to save as many children’s lives as possible by identifying and strengthening under-recognized life-saving interventions that are highly impactful, scalable, and cost-effective, but currently lack scientific evidence of their impact. Accordingly, the winning applicants will propose studies that will yield previously unavailable proof demonstrating the efficacy of programs that deserve much greater support. By securing this proof, these programs will be empowered to save more lives.

    The Data For Life prize funds are intended to secure valuable pieces of scientific evidence that will save children’s lives. Prize funds may be spent on a combination of collecting field data where a life-saving intervention is deployed, the deployment of the intervention itself, or the capacity and personnel needed to deploy the intervention. The goal is to obtain the best evidence possible with the funds available.
