Funding is for one year only and communities must be able to show in-kind or additional funding support.

Successful applicants this year include the First Nations University of Canada in partnership with Cote First Nation in Kamsack; the Makwa Lake Development Co. in partnership with Makwa Sahgaiehcan First Nation in Loon Lake; the Muskeg Lake Cree Nation in Leask; the Nipawin Oasis Community Centre Co-operative; the Prince Albert Literacy Network; the Saskatoon Student Wellness Initiative Toward Community Health; and the North Central Family Centre in Regina.
