The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has extended the closing date to October 7, 2019 for the submission of applications for funding to support the implementation and sustainability of a pan-Canadian suicide prevention service that will provide people in Canada with access to 24/7/365 bilingual crisis support from trained responders via voice, text and chat technology. The extension is intended to compensate for delays resulting from absences that are typical at this time of year.
Through the Invitation to Submit a Funding Request (ISFR), applicants can request up to $4,200,000 per fiscal year, for five (5) years. Since PHAC anticipates supporting one funding recipient through this ISFR process, partnerships and collaborations between the funding recipient and other organizations are key requirements for the solicitation and are critical to the success of the initiative. The extension of the closing date allows additional time for applicants to secure commitments from the decision makers of partnering organizations.
For information and instruction on submitting a proposal, we invite interested organizations to visit the web page for the Health Promotion Program – Suicide Prevention: Supporting the Implementation and Sustainability of a pan-Canadian Suicide Prevention Service at the following address: https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/funding-opportunities/grant-contribution-funding-opportunities/suicide-prevention-health-promotion-program.html
To obtain the application documents or for questions regarding the solicitation process, please contact the Centre for Grants and Contributions via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The revised closing date for this solicitation is October 7, 2019 at 3pm EDT. In the spirit of partnership, the contact information of those who request the ISFR documents will be shared with other stakeholders who have requested the documents; the requestor will have an opportunity to advise that they prefer not to have their contact information shared.
