Wednesday, September 10th, 2014

The session will build awareness of the NAHS and provide support to communities interested in preparing an application for 2015/16 funding cycle (applications are due October 15th, 2014)

Workshop Objectives

AANDC BC Region's New Approach for Housing Support (NAHS) aims to align AANDC funding in a way that supports First Nations in developing and implementing long-term, viable housing strategies that reflect community needs.

 

This approach supports 3 separate, but complimentary, “Streams”:

Stream 1:  Planning, Policy Development, Training and Capacity Building

Stream 2:  Multi-year Project

Stream 3:  Lot Development

 

The 2014/15 fiscal year is the first year of implementing funding for NAHS and preparations for 2015/16 implementation are underway.  This session will provide opportunity to:

  •   Build awareness of objectives and criteria for NAHS

  •   Discuss how NAHS can support your community

  •   Determine your community’s readiness for NAHS

  •   Provide an opportunity for sharing and networking
