Library and Archives Canada announced today the launch of the 2021–2022 funding cycle for its Documentary Heritage Communities Program (DHCP).
Since this program was introduced in 2015, some 159 organizations have benefited from the financial assistance provided to enhance their capacity to sustainably preserve, share and highlight Canada’s documentary heritage. Every dollar invested helps to increase awareness of and access to local and regional histories that should be shared across the country, not only in the communities where the projects originated.
Eligible archival centres and other memory institutions can now apply for a portion of the $1.5 million that will be allocated in 2021–2022.
Check your project and organization’s eligibility and have a look at the Program’s guidelines posted on the Library and Archives Canada website. Please read them, as we have made changes that may affect your submissions.
For questions about the Program, call Library and Archives Canada at 819-997-0893 or 1-844-757-8035, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The application deadline for the 2021–2022 funding cycle is January 12, 2021, at 11:59 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
