Each stream has a maximum amount of funding available per project, per year, as well as eligible activities and mandatory timeframes for project completion.

Organizations can submit applications for multiple projects as long as each project serves distinct and different outcomes.

For more information on the terms and conditions of these grants, see the Grant Agreement Template (PDF, 9 pages). Terms and conditions of the grant should be reviewed prior to submitting an application.
