CPF update: Publishers to receive funding notice this month

Publishers who applied to the Aid to Publishers (ATP) component of the Canada Periodical Fund (CPF) will receive a letter at some point this month indicating funding amounts to be awarded for the 2012-2013 period. Grant money has been allocated based on the transition plan laid out in the ATP funding formula which is being implemented gradually over three years, of which 2012-2013 is the second year. Unlike last year’s two-payment strategy, grant recipients for 2012-2013 will receive their full amounts in a single payment.

Payments are currently being processed and applicants who have been approved for funding can expect to receive grant cheques in the coming months.

For information about the funding formula, please consult the Aid to Publishers Fact Sheet.
