Métis Nation–Saskatchewan Reaching Home Call for Proposals
Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S) is re-opening the call for proposal process for strategies that help address chronic homelessness in communities across the province. Opportunity exists for homelessness projects to receive funding through the federal Reaching Home program.
In this call for proposals, housing-first supports and capital projects will take priority. The MN–S Ministry of Housing and Infrastructure is focused on applicants demonstrating a strong ability to partner across funders and with community organizations.
This is part of the federal Reaching Home Indigenous and Rural and Remote funding streams. Reaching Home Indigenous funding is available for projects in all communities in Saskatchewan, with the exception of Regina and Saskatoon. Reaching Home Rural and Remote funding is available to all centres in Saskatchewan with the exception of Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert.
The application process for funding is open until October 13, 2022.
If you have any questions about the call for proposals, please contact [email protected].
Métis Nation–Saskatchewan Emergency Repair Program
The Métis Nation–Saskatchewan Emergency Repair Program (MN–S ERP), a component of the MN–S Housing Strategy, is being reintroduced in October..
The ERP provides a one-time, indirect grant to registered Métis citizens who currently own their homes and earn less that $100,000.00 a year.
Applications go through a selection process that involves a home inspection report that prioritizes needs. Individuals looking for cosmetic fixes will not be eligible.
The application process helps MN–S assess housing conditions and adjust the Housing Strategy to address gaps identified in certain communities.
ERP Guidelines and applications will be available here on October 11.
