Dear colleagues,

The British Columbia History Digitization Program (BCHDP) is seeking 
early notice from prospective 2022/2023 grant applicants. This will 
enable follow-up with applicants eligible for and interested in 
additional support during the grant application process.

*If your organisation is considering applying for a 2022/2023 BCHDP 
grant this October, please fill out this short Notice of Intent survey: 

Early notice will be accepted until September 15, but the earlier notice 
you provide the more support we can provide. Early notice is not 
mandatory, but is expected to improve chances of a successful grant 

Information provided in the Notice of Intent survey will only be used 
for follow-up, it will not form part of your application. Organisations 
eligible for and indicating interest in additional support during the 
grant application process will be contacted.

Support for eligible organisations can include assistance with: 
completing the grant application; project management; copyright 
advisory; connections to digitisation service providers; securing 
digitisation staff; preparing metadata; and hosting digitised materials 
in the Arca provincial digital repository.


The British Columbia History Digitization Program (BCHDP), launched by 
the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre in 2006, provides matching funds to 
support digitization projects that make unique British Columbia content 
freely available.

2022/2023 funding year. Applicants can receive up to $15,000 of matching 
funds for their projects. In 2021, the program awarded more than 
$150,000 for 19 projects. Since its inception in 2006, the BCHDP has 
awarded more than $2 million of matching funds for more than 260 
projects. For more information about the BCHDP program and to view past
