Apply for funding for First Nations housing

What is the First Nation Partnership Program?

The First Nation Partnership Program assists First Nations governments, First Nations Development Corporations and First Nations housing providers to construct new housing, renovate or rehabilitate existing housing, and provide rent supplements for new units. 

The funding for this program has been fully expended for this year. Contact us for other potential funding opportunities. We will keep your application on file in case more funding becomes available.
