Other Things to Note:
- 1CMF programs should be updated in April -May of each year because CMF provides funding for the fiscal year April 1 to March 31, and in January most of them are already closed and there is no data on the next programs.
- 2Previous guidelines were published in April 2021. CMF Projects that receive CMF funding in a given year are subject to the Guidelines and CMF policies in effect for that fiscal year. To be clear, changes to CMF Guidelines and/or policies made in a subsequent fiscal year will not apply retroactively, unless specifically stated. The CMF fiscal year is April 1 to March 31.
- 3Due to a high demand for the Anglophone Minority Incentive, the CMF will no longer be accepting applications from applicants for the Second Opening Date (September 7, 2021-December 10, 2021).
