The deadline for the spring intake of Indigenous or Métis community projects looking for Government of Saskatchewan funding is approaching.
Until May 14th, Indigenous and Métis groups will be able to apply for a grant from the province, if their projects support economic, social and cultural building. If they meet the requirements, the $300,000 in total funding will be dispersed by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Government Relations.
Minister Responsible for First Nations, Métis and Northern Affairs Don McMorris said in a statement that they want to continue funding Indigenous-led projects that will lead to healing, reconciliation and long-term partnerships through our First Nations and Métis Community Partnership Project Program.
Last year, the program provided a total of $400,000 towards projects created at the local level, devoted to working on issues raised by the National Inquiry into Missing Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
More information on applying for the program can be found online, via email or by calling 306-798-0183. While there is a deadline for spring intakes, there will be another later this year.
