On June 27, 2022, the Department of Canadian Heritage was pleased to announce the Canada Arts and Culture Recovery Program (CACRP) which continues the Department’s targeted support for organizations that are still facing significant financial challenges in the third year of the pandemic. 

As part of the CARCP, the Museums Assistance Program (MAP) is now accepting applications for assistance with ongoing operating costs through the Recovery Fund for Heritage Organizations ($13.6 million in 2022-2023). This assistance will help heritage organizations as they seek to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, helping to compensate for lost revenues due to public health restrictions and capacity limits that were put in place.

Not-for-profit organizations with a heritage collection, such as museums, archives, and historic sites, may be eligible to receive funding. Indigenous organizations with a heritage collection are also encouraged to apply. Organizations can receive between $1,000 and $80,000 in emergency support - grants are calculated to 8% of your expenses.

If you need assistance, or encounter challenges with your online submission, don't hesitate to contact your Regional office or call 1-866-811-0055 (toll-free) including to receive PDF forms.

Deadline to apply for funding is August 2, 2022. Applications for the 2022 Recovery Fund for Heritage Organizations will be accepted through the Canadian Heritage Funding Portal (CHFP).

If you submitted to either of the previous two pandemic support funding programs, you can return to the same online portal to complete your application HERE.

In order to proceed with your application, you must read the Application Guidelines in their entirety and have completed the Applicant Profile section, which includes uploading required documents. An Applicant Profile only needs to be created once and will be used for all future funding applications that are accepted through the Canadian Heritage Funding Portal. 

Clients who submit an application will receive an automatic acknowledgement message confirming receipt of their application. Applicants should expect a funding decision within sixteen weeks of submitting a complete application.
Applicants are encouraged to apply early as funds are limited. If your organization is eligible, submitting an application does not guarantee funding.

Ineligible groups include groups who receive reopening or recovery funding from other Canadian Heritage programs or from the Canada Council for the Arts in the 2022-2023 fiscal year.

Should you be unable to access the new online system or apply online for any reason, please contact the support team HERE.
