AANDC BC Region's New Approach for Housing Support (NAHS) Workshop
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)
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
