Grant Deadlines and Terms of Reference
The next deadline for CRFA grant applications is April 5, 2024. Applicants will be notified of the results as soon as possible after the Committee has met to adjudicate the applications. Due to the CRFA's limited budget, applicants are generally encouraged to submit their applications early in the budget year to optimize their chances of success. Please note that expense claims for projects funded in the 2024-25 budget year must be submitted no later than February 28, 2025 at the absolute latest (earlier if possible) or the grant holder may risk forfeiting the grant.
Please note that applications must be submitted in advance of the project expenditures. Projects with expenses dating after early March 2024 should be submitted for consideration in the first competition of the next budget year.
In cases where the appropriateness of the project is in question, the applicant may be asked for more information. Applicants are welcome to discuss their potential requests with the Director prior to making a formal application.
There is no limit on the number of requests an individual can make over the course of the year, although new applicants will receive priority, all things being equal.
The CRFA will normally provide a maximum of $500 in support of activities that occur locally or regionally, $750 for those that occur nationally, and $1000 for those that are international.
