Apply for contribution funding

The application process for Step 2: contribution funding and/or collaborative research and development  support, is anticipated to launch in August 2021 and end in December 2021. The Contribution Applicant Guide and exact launch and close dates of the Step 2 application process will be provided here in summer 2021.

Applicants, including organizations who received grant funding, will need to request the Step 2 application package to be able to develop the comprehensive project proposal and apply for contribution funding and/or collaborative research and development support.

It is expected that approved comprehensive projects will be 5 years in duration, although shorter timelines will be considered as long as project proposals meet eligibility requirements and contribute to meeting program objectives.

Note that the approval of funding under  Step 1 grant funding is not  a requirement for consideration of funding and/or support under Step 2. At the same time, all applicants for contribution funding, including grant funding recipients, will be assessed using the same set of criteria.
