Library and Archives Canada recently announced the launch of the 2019-2020 funding cycle for its Documentary Heritage Communities Program.
Since this program was introduced in 2015, some 130 organizations have taken advantage of 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 known and told across the country, not only in the communities where the projects originated. Eligible libraries, archival centres and other memory institutions can now apply for a portion of the $1.5 million that will be allocated in 2019-2020.
The Program’s eligibility criteria and guidelines are posted on the Library and Archives Canada website.
