The CFI expects to fund between five and 10 proposals nationwide. As such, and given the substantial amount of work that goes into preparing and reviewing such proposals, institutions must be very selective about which Notices of Intent they participate in.
CFI will fund up to 40% of the Total Project Cost.
An application can be submitted to EDT for another 40% of Total Project Cost.
The remaining 20% must come from other eligible sources, such as vendor in-kind, institutional contributions or contributions from outside organizations. Tri-council funding cannot be used as a match.
Maximum CFI funding: $2M per project (Maximum Total Project Cost $5M)
