April 3 – The New Relationship Trust (NRT) has reinforced its commitment to strengthen First Nations in British Columbia (BC) by allocating $1.85 million toward Governance Capacity for fiscal year 2018 – 2019.
NRT’s Governance Capacity initiatives provide grants to First Nations communities in BC, helping them move successfully toward independence and self-governance. NRT achieves this through two strategic initiatives: Direct Support – providing funding directly to BC First Nations for capacity building initiatives and; the Nation Council Policy Initiative – supporting policy development in BC at the Nation and Tribal Council level, while promoting information and resource sharing amongst the councils. The call for applications for each of these initiative takes place:
Direct Support opens April 10th, closing May 17th, 2018
Nation Council/Tribal Council opens April 2nd until funds are exhausted
