In response to public health recommendations, travel-based activities and presentations with large in-person gatherings are not eligible at this time.
Please follow the Nova Scotia Health Authority directives when considering the execution of your project. We understand there are unknowns with regard to the possibility of smaller gatherings or collaborations in the upcoming months, therefore please ensure you have included details in your project description about how you could modify your plans if your project is impacted by COVID-19.
We realize that this might be difficult to do because no one knows yet when certain restrictions will lift, but a brief description of any contingency plans that you could adopt if your project can not be carried out as planned will help to inform the peer assessment committee of what is possible.
Depending on how the COVID-19 situation develops, grant recipients may be asked to provide confirmation that plans are proceeding before grant payments are issued.
