Technical Support Micro-Grant

A special emergency fund of $356 000 has been allocated by the CRFC to support the creation and distribution of spoken word content by stations created outside of their broadcast studios during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. With reduced access to broadcast studios in a period of crisis where communities need to be kept informed as much as possible, we feel this funding can help stations fulfill their duties as an essential service to their communities.

The CRFC is offering a micro-grant up to $2,000 to support stations who have had additional technical needs to be able to continue creating and distributing original programming during the COVID-19 crisis.

Eligible applicants are Canadian stations who hold a valid CRTC-issued campus or community radio broadcasting license (as set out in Public Notice CRTC 2010-499).

Deadline – June 5, 2020.
