The closing date for applications is January 24, 2020.

The total amount of funding available through the incentive is approximately C$120,000 or ZAR 1,800,000 ($105,000). Each funding organization will contribute half of the funds, with the total maximum contribution for each project funded through the incentive set at C$40,000 or ZAR 400,000 ($28,500).
