New funding program announced

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is pleased to announce the launch of its new Documentary Heritage Communities Program (DHCP). This contribution program is a collaborative approach which will ensure the outreach of Canada’s local documentary heritage communities.

The contributions will support the development of Canada’s local archival and library communities, as well as their professional associations, by increasing their capacity to preserve, provide access to and promote documentary heritage and will provide opportunities for local documentary heritage communities to evolve and remain sustainable.

LAC invites all eligible organizations to apply at their earliest convenience. The deadline for the 2015 funding cycle is September 4, 2015 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time.
Additional information on the DHCP, including eligibility criteria for organizations and initiatives can be found on LAC’s website (www.bac-lac.gc.ca/eng/contributions) or by contacting LAC at (819) 997-0893 or 1-844-757-8035 (toll-free in Canada and the US).

If you are interested in this program and would like more information, or if you have comments on the terms of the program, contact the ANLA office. We’ll tell you what we know – it’s new and exciting to us too! Expect to hear more as we learn more.
