*Canadian Roots Exchange has no affiliation with FNT2T* however we are sharing an opportunity that they have posted online.
The Canadian Roots Exchange (CRE) is offering a Community Support Fund to enable small organizations and collectives to support youth wellbeing during COVID-19.
Groups can apply for up to $5,000 to provide innovative and essential supports, resources, and initiatives to Indigenous youth (ages 14-29). CRE defines Indigenous as status and non-status First Nation, Inuit, and Métis peoples in Canada, living both on and off reserve.
Two deadlines have already past, and the next one is very soon (between May 11-29, 2020); however, the application process seems to be somewhat simple.
The Community Support Fund will accept applications over three periods. This will be a competitive process. We are anticipating a large number of applications and unfortunately will not be able to fund all projects and initiatives. Applicants are eligible to reapply to a later round if they are unsuccessful in an earlier round.
Each organization/collective/group can only receive funding once. Schools and youth councils are eligible (band councils & individuals are not eligible). Again, CRE states that they are expecting a lot of applications so not all applicants will be selected.
