Documentary Heritage Communities Program

Library and Archives Canada has opened the call for DHCP proposals for the 2023–2024 funding cycle. DHCP funding helps local heritage organizations raise their profile, preserve their collections better or make them more accessible to all.

Since 2015 a total of $12 million has supported 190 different Canadian organizations, with the completion of 310 projects. A few of those have been family history societies, most successfully when in partnerships.

As a panellist evaluating the projects in past years I recommend getting to work on proposals soon, a hurriedly prepared proposal is unlikely to be of a quality to be funded.

The deadline for applications is 12 January 2023, at 11:59 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time).
