NT Government: Take a Family on the Land Returns
April 12, 2022
For the second year in a row, the Government of the Northwest Territories is offering funding to organizations to help families get out on the land. The program is designed to help offset the costs of participating in on the land experiences, so more residents can get involved. Some of the experiences available for funding include camping, boating, fishing, hunting, and other traditional activities.
Indigenous governments, Indigenous organizations, community governments and not-for-profit associations can apply for funding to support families in their community. Individuals cannot apply for this program directly. Successful applicants will receive up to $10,000 to support families who may not have the resources to participate in on the land activities.
Families are defined as any two or more people who play an important role in each other’s lives, and all family combinations, including single-parent families and multigenerational families, are eligible.
Applications will be accepted from April 11 to May 11, 2022.
“I am thrilled that the popular Take a Family on the Land program is back for its second year. Being on the land is very important to residents of the Northwest Territories, and this inclusive program helps to eliminate barriers and provides opportunities for families to get out there.”
– Shane Thompson, Minister of Environment and Natural Resources
- Applicants can apply for up to $10,000 each.
- Since its launch in 2021, the program has provided funding to 33 organizations across the territory.
