There are two presenter categories:
- Community Presenter – Maximum Award: $10,000
- Key Presenter – Maximum Award: $15,000
If you received a grant from the first and/or second intake of CPA (June 2020, November 2020), and are making a third application, place your total eligible amount as your grant request but keep in mind, you can not receive more than the maximum for the year. In other words, if you were a Key Presenter and received a grant of $10,000 from the first intake and $3,000 for the second intake, the maximum grant you could receive from the third intake would be $2,000.
Events must occur between Feb 1, 2021 and June 30, 2021
