What is the Time Period for Projects?

Projects can begin as early as April 1, 2008 and run up to March 31, 2010.

Supported Priority Areas

There are five priority areas which are eligible for funding under MOAUIPP. (Please see the Guide for a complete description of the priority areas.) These priority areas are as follows:

1. Public Awareness: activities are meant to increase a person’s knowledge of risk factors for developing type 2 diabetes, what type 2 diabetes is, and how it can be prevented.
2. Health Education: activities that inform people and increase knowledge regarding the disease, supports available, and encourage individual action.
3. Skills Development: provides education to improve individual capacity, such as a healthy eating cooking class.
4. Community Mobilization: encourages and supports people to take action to address diabetes issues in their own community.
5. Creating a Supportive Environment: supporting the creation of healthy policies and practices to promote health, such as a healthy nutrition policy in schools.

Please Note: Applicants to MOAUIPP can only apply for work under these specified priority areas. In addition, projects may focus on specific population groups particularly affected in their community (for example, children, women, elders) or for the broader target population (such as: Métis, Off-reserve status and non-status First Nations and Urban Inuit).
