On August 12, the Government of Canada announced an additional $305 million for the Indigenous Community Support Fund (ICSF).  Of the $305 million, an allocation based amount has been distributed to support your COVID-19 response.

In addition, a needs-based process was also announced, in which all Indigenous communities and organizations, including those located on or off reserve, are able to submit applications for COVID-19 need-based support.

The process for the needs-based COVID-19 funding has just been released. For details on how to apply for the needs-based process, including selection criteria and examples of activities funded, please visit:

All applications will be reviewed and approved by Indigenous Services Canada as per the selection criteria listed on the website.

Applicants are asked to submit their applications by November 30, as funding must be disbursed by the department by December 31, 2020.  

Indigenous Services Canada encourages all applicants to send their applications as needs for additional resources arise to ensure successful applicants receive funding as soon as possible.
