Language Program Funding Expressions of Interest

The Language Program funding process is different this year as it will begin with the submission of an Expression of Interest (EOI) for all Language Programs that are offered to organizations.

*Please note that this is not an application for funding. The EOI is an indication of interest in applying for funding in the project areas selected and to identify program priorities.

The deadline for EOI submissions is December 14, 2023.

To learn more and submit your Expression of Interest, visit

Please share the Expression Of Interest Poster with your community.
