In July 2012, the CRFC launched its new funding program titled *Radiometres:
Measuring the development, participation and sustainability of campus and
community radio stations*. The funding distributed under this program is
provided by Canada's commercial radiobroadcasters through a portion of
their Canadian Content Development (CCD) contributions.

Since 2008, the CRFC also administers the *Radio Talent Development
Program*and the
*Youth Internship Program*. Both were created by Astral Media and are now
run by the CRFC.

In addition to falling under several of the CRFC's program priority
these three programs aim to achieve the objectives set forth in the CRTC
policy on the development of Canadian content. Therefore, funding must be
dedicated to volunteerism, programming and community participation. Funded
projects must include direct expenses that are allocated to the support,
promotion, training, and development of Canadian music, spoken word, and
journalistic talent.

Funding is available to not-for-profit stations who hold a CRTC-issued
campus, community-based campus, campus instructional, or community (type A
or B) radio broadcasting licence in Canada (as set out in Public Notices
CRTC 2000-12, 2000-13, or 2010-499).

*1. Radiometres: Measuring the development, participation and
sustainability of campus and community radio stations* *Radiometres* has
been created to meet both the requirements of the CRTC and the needs of
campus and community radio sector. In order to do so, the CRFC has
established an outcomes-based approach program. This approach is focused on
funding what the stations need and then measuring how successful they were
in getting there. The program is flexible when it comes to the activities
that are undertaken by the station.

Here are the three outcomes of the program:
1. High-quality, locally-reflective music and spoken word programming
2. Skilled and sustainable volunteer participation in local content
creation and operations
3. Diverse community participation in governance, programming, and content

These three outcomes have been established to reflect some of the key goals
of the campus and community radio sector, the CRTC, and the Canadian
broadcasting system.

*Total funding available*: $1,000,000

*Eligible amounts*: up to $20,000

*Deadline*: August 21, 2012
