CIF’s new online grant platform is now open!
You must apply for all grants using CIF’s new online grant platform. Before submitting your April 1, 2018 application, you will need to create a new account with CIF’s grant platform. You are strongly encouraged to create your account well in advance of the April 1st deadline as it may take up to 3 business days to confirm the creation of your account before you can start your application. If you've created your new account and haven’t received login instructions within 3 days, be sure to check your spam folder!

To create or login to your account, click here or copy and paste into your browser.

Google Chrome is the recommended browser for this grant platform and is free to download here.

Even though the April 1, 2018 deadline lands on a holiday long-weekend, the deadline remains April 1st at midnight. Staff will not be available to answer your questions over the long-weekend. Ensure you create your account in advance of the deadline to allow for up to 3 business days to confirm your account before you can start your application.

All applications must be submitted online, and paper copies will not be accepted.
