Genome BC has committed an initial investment of $2M, with plans to allocate additional funds to continue the program once such funds become available. Genome BC plans to run multiple intakes per year, and limit the investment for each intake to a maximum of $1M to ensure that funds are available for subsequent intakes. Note that the specific program parameters and eligibility criteria may vary depending on the particular intake.
- Each intake will have a focus, such as particular sector(s) or a theme (e.g. climate change), and will only be open to projects which address the needs of that particular sector or sectors, or respond to that particular theme;
- The allowable project budgets range is $75,000 to $250,000, but this may vary for a particular intake;
- Co-funding (matching funds) is not required for these projects;
- The allowable project term range is 12 and 24 months, but this may vary for a particular intake.
