The NWT On The Land Collaborative says it has doled out $1 million in funding this year to support projects meant to revitalize and strengthen connections to the land.
The coalition is made up of several organizations — including government, charitable and corporate groups. It’s meant to bring various partners together to make it easier for communities to access resources for on-the-land programming.
The funding this year went to support 55 projects across the territory, according to a news release from NWT On The Land Collaborative. The grants afforded ranged from $2,500 to $60,000.
Some of grants went to the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation, to help fund a regional on-the-land literacy camp, and to the Dehcho First Nations, to support
