Application for project funding

March 21, 2019
  • Forms

Large-scale FCEF project submissions are reviewed four times per year by our Project Review Committee. The schedule for Quarter 2 is as follows:

  • Application due by: April 16th
  • Results returned by: May 6th

Large project applications submitted outside of the above schedule may not be reviewed due to time constraints. If you feel you have a large project application that is time-sensitive and requires review outside of the year’s pre-selected deadlines, please reach out to the FCEF Co-ordinator at to discuss. Plan ahead – the FCEF Co-ordinator can help you at all stages of the application drafting process.


Organizing a project is a great way to create ties with neighbours and community groups, educate your members and their families, involve new activists and reach out to NextGen activists. The Fund Co-ordinator can help you with creating project ideas, writing your application, and designing educational components. Reach out today for support!
