Apply for funding to help your community stay Active, Resilient, and Connected

* IMPORTANT: Any use of grant funds must be in line with GNWT public health directives at the time the grant is used (for events, this means at the time of the event); please also read up-to-date guidelines for Gatherings and Events. Emerging Wisely: Path to Eased Public Health Restrictions should also be consulted.
