First time applicants, and those requiring further information or assistance with the application, should contact OCAF staff prior to submitting a Stage 1 application. Organizations must start the application process approximately eight months prior to an event. OCAF has a two-stage application process which ensures that organizations do not dedicate significant time, effort and resources to an ineligible project. Stage 2 applications should be assessed by the OCAF Board approximately six months prior to an event. We are open to relaxing these timelines in light of the challenges presented by the Covid-19 health crisis. Please contact Thomas Vaughan at email@example.com to discuss the eligibility of your event.
