2025/2026 BC History Digitization Program Call for Notices of Intent

The British Columbia History Digitization Program (BCHDP) is seeking early notice from prospective applicants for the 2025/2026 funding year. This will enable program staff to follow-up with applicants eligible for and interested in additional support during the grant application process. 

If your organization is considering applying for a 2025/2026 BCHDP grant, please fill out this short Notice of Intent Survey (https://surveys.bceln.ca/limesurvey/index.php?r=survey/index&sid=769458&lang=en).  

Early notice will be accepted until August 6, 2024, but the earlier notice you provide the more support we can provide. Early notice is not mandatory but is expected to improve the chances of a successful grant application. 

The information provided in the Notice of Intent Survey will only be used for follow-up, it will not form part of your application. Organizations eligible for and indicating interest in additional support during the grant application process will be contacted. 

Support for eligible organizations can include assistance with completing the grant application; project management; copyright advisory; connections to digitization service providers; securing digitization staff; preparing metadata; and hosting digitized materials in the Arca provincial digital repository. 

Prospective applicants should be a registered charity or qualified donee listed by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). If the applicant is not a registered charity or qualified donee, a community organization that is a qualified donee may be permitted to act as a financial intermediary.
