The 2017-2018 call for proposals under the Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples: Programs and services funding stream is now open.
About the call
As part of the new Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples program, Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) is launching a call for proposals for projects that will support organizations delivering a broad range of programs and services to urban Indigenous peoples.
Project funding will be broad enough to provide the flexibility to address a wide range of locally-identified issues, provided that they are not already funded or eligible to be funded by other federal departments.
Project funding is available for up to five years under the following six key areas:
1. women (such as projects to help women transition out of shelters)
2. vulnerable populations (such as projects for persons with addictions, disabilities, seniors)
3. youth (such as projects that provide land-based activities, mentoring)
4. transition services (such as navigator services)
5. outreach programs (such as cultural awareness training for non-Indigenous organizations) 6. community wellness (such as housing plans or studies, anti-racism, pre employment supports)
Who can apply?
• Indigenous organizations
• municipal governments
• health authorities and institutions
• education authorities and institutions, such as school boards, foundations and associations
• non-Indigenous organizations
All non-Indigenous organizations, including municipal governments, health and education authorities and institutions, require demonstrated support from Indigenous organizations or Indigenous community groups to be eligible for funding.
The deadline to submit a proposal is July 4, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
