** An important message for projects approved during the COVID-19
If you are approved for funding in the 2020-21 fiscal year and the approved project is canceled due to COVID-19 and have made non-recoverable expenses (such as flights and accommodation deposits), the MID Program will honour all approved funding for those expenses. For example, if you spent $1000 on non-refundable flight tickets, the MID will cover 75% as per the funding agreement.
Proof of losses due to non-recoverable expenses incurred will need to be provided to be eligible for funding.
If you have been approved and haven't made any expenses towards the project: The amount will be placed "on hold" for your next project. You will still need to submit an application for the project, but it will be reviewed by the MID Committee (and not the jury). If the project is deemed legitimate, you will receive funding. While your next project is not automatically approved, it will expedite your application.
The situation with respect to the financial effects of coronavirus disruptions is being monitored closely and will be reviewed with the Music/Musique NB Board of Directors as need be. We thank everyone for their support and patience.
