- up to 75% cash from Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) FACTAP,
- optional 5% cash or in-kind contribution from other federal or provincial government sources (more if PEIFACTAP reached the maximum of $20,000 and/or if DFO FACTAP is less than 75%).
The applicant is responsible for a minimum of 10% cash of total eligible project costs (more if total government funding is less than 90%).
