Call for Applications for the Indigenous Violence Prevention Grants Program (Canada)

Deadline: 28-Jun-24

The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is pleased to announce a call for applications for the Indigenous Violence Prevention Grants Program.

In order to achieve the long-term systemic change required to prevent violence in Indigenous communities, it is essential that the Provincial Government work collaboratively with Indigenous women’s groups and organizations to achieve the collective goal – a society where Indigenous women, children, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ individuals live free from the threat of violence and abuse.

This objective of this program is supporting targeted efforts, led by Indigenous governments and organizations, to combat violence within their communities.

Based on knowledge shared from Indigenous women’s groups and organizations, the Provincial Government acknowledges that there are many culturally appropriate approaches to preventing violence in Indigenous communities including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Increasing awareness, education and training,
  • Investing in leadership development,
  • Building community capacity, and
  • Enhancing opportunities for healing.
Focus Areas
  • Focus areas may include:
    • Building community support networks,
    • Supporting survivors and/or their families,
    • Connecting to cultural values,
    • Addressing stigma,
    • Engaging men and boys,
    • Improving shelter service delivery, and/or
    • Violence Prevention training delivery.
