Canadian Agricultural Safety and Health Program Deadlines May 22 & July 24/09

May 02, 2009

CASA project manager Jonas Johnson says projects should fit one of four priority areas – research and development; safe farm operations and management; communications; building sector capacity to implement safety on farms.

CASHP’s selection committee may consider allocating funds to projects outside the priority area if they make a significant contribution to increasing ag safety and health.

Application deadlines are May 22 and July 24 this year.  Eligible projects must be completed by March 2010.  Funding availability for 2009-10 is subject to funding by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
Applications may come from:  individuals; producer organizations; non-profit organizations; agricultural service/supply associations; academia and research. Provincial and municipal governments, crown corporations and government agencies are eligible only if they are acting as delivery agents of the CASHP funds to an eligible recipient.
