NU Government: Healthy Children Initiative Funding

Press Release

The Department of Education is currently accepting community funding requests for the 2020-21 Healthy Children Initiative. The goal of this program is to have healthy children growing up with strong, supportive families in caring communities.

The Healthy Children Initiative provides funding for communities to develop or improve programs for children aged 0-6, and their families. The programs should highlight early intervention or supportive services for young children.

We encourage proposals from licensed child care facilities, or other eligible organizations in good standing with Nunavut Legal Registries, such as district education authorities, hamlets, family day homes, and parents-and-tots programs.

The deadline for proposal submissions is March 15, 2020.
