Prerequisites and Conditions

Unless otherwise indicated, the qualifying expenses, prerequisites and conditions for the Basic Support Grant would mirror those for the similar grants under the CCF Grant Framework. For example, the same prerequisites and conditions for CCF Training Grant would apply to claims for training expenses under the Basic Support Grant. However, the cap under Basic Support Grant is lower, and claims may only be made for short-term courses, seminars and conferences.

CCF Basic Support Grant 2021 Final


1. The following Special Grants are also available to co-operatives with negative net worth and/or did not make CCF contributions – Legal Services Grant (for by-law amendments), Outsourced Internal Audit Grant and Minimum Competency Training Grant.

2. This category can also cover claims for PDPA-related training if the co-operative has reached the cap under “PDPA expenses” category.

3. If a co-operative begins its PDPA project when it had a surplus and made CCF contributions (thus qualified for PDPA Grant under Special Grants) but incurs a deficit the following year, it will be subject to the lower cap under this Basic Support Grant. Thus, if the co-operative has already claimed more than $5k for PDPA expenses, it will not be able to claim more until it starts making CCF contributions again.
