The Community Radio Fund of Canada (CRFC) radio is proud to announce a new call for applications for its Radiometres Program. Through their projects, stations will continue to grow and serve their community.

Radiometres is an ever-evolving program. With this new round, we strive to support Canadian campus and community radio stations in their ability to produce innovative programming that reflects their community. In this vein, the CRFC will now hold two calls for application for the Radiometres Program yearly in order to support stations across the country. " underlines Jean Malavoy, CRFC’s Executive Director.

Radiometres offers up to $30,000 per project, and up to $100,000 per partnership project, to eligible stations.

Following changes in the program, stations are encouraged to read the revised guidelines and use the new form to submit applications. These documents can be downloaded from our website at the following link: Application Materials.

Stations have until August 31, 2014 to submit their application.

The Radiometres Program, designed with stations’ essential needs in mind, was launched in 2012. In that time, it has awarded more than $3 million for 148 initiatives in 89 communities across Canada.

The funding for Radiometres is provided by Canada’s private radio broadcasters through their Canadian Content Development (CCD) contributions, a funding mechanism established by the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). These contributions play an important part in strengthening the campus and community sector of the Canadian broadcasting system.

The Community Radio Fund of Canada is the national not-for-profit funding body for the growth and sustainability of campus and community radio. More than 170 community-based radio stations across Canada make up the community-owned, volunteer-driven sector of Canadian broadcasting. The CRFC helps develop and enrich this vital broadcasting sector to ensure local, public-access radio for Canadian communities.
