NWT On The Land Collaborative

There is a lot of interest in on the land programming in the North because it contributes to the health of the land, people, communities, and economies. However, running these programs can be a lot of work; communities and organizations often have to apply to many different places to access the funding and support they need. The Collaborative brings together government, charitable, corporate, and other partners to combine efforts and make it easier for communities to access money and resources for on the land projects.Who is eligible to apply for a grant from the Collaborative?
