Anti-Human Trafficking Indigenous-Led Initiatives Fund

Description

The Anti-Human Trafficking Indigenous-Led Initiatives Fund (the Fund) is one of the initiatives under Ontario’s Strategy to End Human Trafficking, announced in June 2016.

The Fund will be used to support the delivery of culturally relevant and survivor-focused services designed and delivered by, and for, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.

The design of the Fund was driven by the recognition that Indigenous women and girls are overrepresented in sex trafficking in certain regions of Ontario. It also reflects the province’s commitment to ensuring Indigenous peoples determine the service priorities and best responses for their communities.

The Provincial Anti-Human Trafficking Coordination Office (the Office) at the Ministry of Community and Social Services is issuing a Call for Applications to invite Indigenous organizations and communities to apply for funding.

There are two funding streams available:

Stream One is the Community Planning and Development Stream

This stream is intended to provide capacity building funding in 2017/18 to support applicants with the planning and development of Indigenous-led projects in 2018/19.

  • For example, an Indigenous community or organization recognizes that human trafficking is occurring in their area, but is uncertain about the best programming response. They require time and funding to engage and plan with relevant partners and service providers prior to submitting an application for project delivery funding.

    o Recipients of Stream One that require funding for project delivery and implementation will be asked to provide an application in 2018/19.

Stream Two is the Project Delivery Funding Stream

This stream is intended to support applicants with the implementation and delivery of Indigenous-led projects that would begin in 2017/18.

Stream two applicants can apply for up to three years of funding (2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20).

  • For example, an Indigenous community or organization has existing service partnerships, experience providing supports to Indigenous survivors of human trafficking and persons with lived experience and is ready to deliver programming.

Deadline

The application period is now closed. The Provincial Anti-Human Trafficking Coordination Office is no longer accepting applications under this Call for Applications.
