Métis Government in Saskatchewan calls for proposals to mitigate homelessness

Dec 13, 2021 – Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S) is working hard to meet the need for social and housing-first supports to help address chronic homelessness in communities across the province. To support this, MN–S is launching a call for proposals for eligible applicants to develop community responses to homelessness.

MN–S is the Community Entity for Reaching Home: Canada’s Homelessness Strategy (Non-Designated) Indigenous Homelessness, Rural and Remote Homelessness and the Métis Distinction funding streams. MN–S will administer funding for projects that focus on reducing and mitigating the impacts of homelessness throughout the province of Saskatchewan.

In this call for proposals, social and housing-first supports, and capital projects will take priority. The MN–S Ministry of Housing and Infrastructure is focused on applicants demonstrating a proven ability to partner across funders and with community organizations.

Canada’s Reaching Home Indigenous funding stream ($2,962,543) is available to projects off-reserve and outside Saskatoon and Regina. Rural and Remote funding ($721,507) is intended to support service providers on and off-reserve outside Saskatoon, Regina, and Prince Albert. The estimated funds are available for projects between April 1, 2022, and March 31, 2024.

Funding will be assessed based on the number and strength of proposals received.

Call for proposal program eligibility details and application forms are available here.

The application process for funding is open now until January 14, 2022.
