Funding: Regional projects - Aboriginal homelessness

Aboriginal homelessness

The Aboriginal homelessness funding streamaddresses the specific needs of the off-reserve homeless Aboriginal population by supporting an integrated service delivery system that is culturally appropriate and community-driven.

The Homelessness Partnering Strategy (HPS) partners with Aboriginal groups to ensure that services meet the unique needs of off-reserve homeless Aboriginal people in cities and rural areas. The unique needs of all First Nations, Inuit, Métis, and non-status Indians are also considered.

Please note that off-reserve Aboriginal people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness are also served under the Designated communities and Rural and remote homelessness funding streams.

Who can apply?

Any qualified organizations may apply. However, where feasible, under all of HPS funding streams, preference is given to Aboriginal service delivery organizations in cases where a project's objectives and program activities specifically target Aboriginal individuals off-reserve. This contributes to the development of an integrated, culturally appropriate and community-driven service delivery system to address Aboriginal homelessness needs.

Eligible projects

Projects must meet a demonstrated need and applicants must show that investments will be targeted to address Aboriginal homelessness issues. There is no requirement for a matching contribution, but community contributions are encouraged.

Projects must also meet the terms and conditions of the Homelessness Partnering Strategy.
