Do you have a terrific idea for an activity or event in your classroom, school or community? CPF Nova Scotia wants to support local initiatives that support French language activities. To qualify for a French in our Communities cultural grant, an event must promote one of the following goals:
- Be a new or innovative French activity for your community or school.
- Is an event or performance that highlights French Second-Language or Francophone culture in an educational setting (i.e. a travelling performer, workshop, concert).
- Is a special French Second-Language or Francophone cultural event that is open to the general public.
Grant amounts are available from $250 to $1,000 depending on the scope of your activity. The cultural grant can be applied from September to June. Applications will be reviewed and processed as soon as possible. Please allow time before your event to receive approval.
After your event, submit your receipts for the expenses and we will issue a reimbursement cheque. *Expenses that qualify for reimbursement include: venue/ space rental, buses, gas, price per head, meals, workshop presenter’s fee, materials, etc. Please contact us if you are unsure if an expense is reimbursable
Multiple requests will be approved depending upon funds available. Allow at least two weeks prior to your activity/event for the approval of the French in our Communities grant.
