More March funds!

Health fundingHi Funds Fans, aside from the March Deadline Alert posted last week, please have a look at these too!

First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) is now accepting proposals for its Native American Food Security grant project under its Native Agriculture and Food Systems Initiative (NAFSI). The purpose of the Native American Food Security project is to support Native organizations working to eliminate food insecurity among tribal seniors and elders in rural and/or reservation-based Native American communities.

Under this project, First Nations will award four to five grants, ranging from $20,000 to $25,000 each, to support projects working to eliminate food insecurity among tribal elders. Examples of projects may include, but are not limited to, community gardens, senior nutrition, food banks and/or food pantries, or other projects related to expanding Native community control of food systems. Moreover, projects can focus on increasing food access to tribal elders, food affordability, ensuring sufficient food quality and adequacy, and/or food appropriateness. Projects that also incorporate decreasing senior isolation and/or intergenerational learning will be given additional consideration.  Deadline: March 14th, 2014 at 5:00 PM MDT.
