COVID-19: TEMPORARY CHANGES

To provide our clients with improved access to grants and programs while facing financial pressures associated with COVID-19, the following temporary guideline changes are in place:

  • A restriction on the number of “reprint titles” has been temporarily removed.

  • A restriction that prevented applicants from including both an administration fee and in-house expenses in their project budget has been temporarily removed. 

OUR INVESTMENT

This grant covers up to 50% of eligible book production costs or $80,000 (whichever is the lesser).

 

Applicants may not receive more than $80,000 per fiscal year from both Book Publishing Production Streams.

TWO STREAMS OF INVESTMENT

If the author makes a financial contribution to the project to cover any portion of the cost of production, the self-publisher or publisher must apply to the Author-Funded Stream.

 

Book publishing projects that are not financed by an author must apply to the Book Publishers' Stream.
