Apply for the CVITP Grant

Keep records

Your organization should maintain accurate records of all eligible expenses, total government assistance received and tax returns filed. Be prepared to support the reported numbers in your CVITP Grant application.

Application review

To assess your organization’s eligibility and determine the funding amount, the CRA will review information collected in your organization’s program registration and your CVITP Grant application.

  1. The CRA will review applications and determine funding on a first come, first served basis within each province and territory.
  2. If funds for the grant period remain within any province or territory, these funds will be distributed to remaining applicants still following a first come, first served model.

As a grant applicant, after assessment, you will be notified of the decision for funding. If your organization is successful, a grant funding agreement will be sent to your organization detailing the funding amount. Grant agreements must be signed and returned to the CRA with your banking information for payment purposes.
