Calling all Indigenous housing providers/supporters

NICHI

With Indigenous housing organizations supporting over 80% of First Nations, Inuit and Métis living away from their traditional communities, the National Indigenous Collaborative Housing Inc. (NICHI) is
re-engineering the funding process to support them with a For Indigenous By Indigenous (FIBI) funding program. This fund has $281.5 million for:
– Off-reserve organizations in urban, rural and northern areas of Canada or First Nations that have housing off reserve in urban, rural or northern areas
– Non-profits serving Indigenous People
– Indigenous-led organizations.
As of November 24, applications for this funding are open. Don’t expect a conventional proposal process. This is an Indigenous process where rather than telling applicants, NICHI is asking them to tell us what they need in order to address their local urgent and unmet needs for adequate and affordable housing in urban, rural and northern areas. $281.5 million isn’t nearly enough to address all the problems but it’s start to make your voice heard and demand more.

Applications close 12 January 2024.
