The department funds many different projects and activities and all funding for Indigenous initiatives is now under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy. For advice about your specific need, contact our department’s regional office nearest to you.

We will continue to post stories and announcements about grants and funding here but for more up-to-date and complete information, go to Grants and Funding on the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet website.
