Applications are now open for the Indigenous and Northern Initiatives Grant Program.
This grant program gives funding for projects and initiatives lead by indigenous and non indigenous organizations, and communities.
Projects that improve relationships between indigenous and non indigenous people in Manitoba, projects that improve the quality of life for indigenous people, particularly economic development, job creation, and educational initiatives, projects that support activities that align with the Path to Reconciliation Act, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Calls to Action, or the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and projects that show clear, concrete and positive benefits that align with the provincial government's speech from the throne will receive priority.
The grant program is designed to support small grants up to 25 thousand dollars, but there will be consideration given to larger projects that show significant partnerships and have the potential for exceptional regional or provincial impact.
Only single year projects will be considered and the deadline to apply is February 7th.
