The ACP is supported by a variety of funding programs. At the start of the project (2010), the ACP was supported by seed grants from universities including McMaster University, the University of Saskatchewan, and the University of Waterloo, as well as a workshops and conferences grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). In early 2012, the project received a Canadian Foundation for Innovation Grant through McMaster University, which is supporting project infrastructure (equipment and a post-production studio). Also in 2012, the project received a SSHRC Partnership Development grant, which is supporting the production of two short films and parallel websites addressing racialization and poverty and race and education, completed in collaboration with community organizations in Toronto and Saskatchewan.

Members of this project would like to acknowledge the important support of the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) and the Social Services Humanities and Research Council (SSHRC) and specifically the partnership development program.
