Grants of up to $15,000 to British Columbia, Canada community groups and organizations who want to host or participate in community-based events that help stop violence against Aboriginal women and girls, and to assist with community mobilization and implementation. Funds are intended to bring Aboriginal women and girls together in a safe environment to give voice to issues of violence and abuse within their lives, their families and communities, as well as learn from stories of resilience and strength.
Grants are available in two funding streams:
1) Funding Stream #1: Giving Voice – Up to $7,500 (projects up to one year in duration and completed by November 30, 2015)
Activities that bring participants together in a safe and supportive way will be considered, including traditional activities, guest speakers, and use of social media. Activities can be connected to existing gatherings or events. Applicants are encouraged to choose activities that will be meaningful to the participants, as well as reflective of MACAW’s principles.
2) Funding Stream #2: Community Mobilization and Implementation – Up to $15,000 (projects up to two years in duration, completed by November 30, 2016)
This stream provides funding for communities ready to mobilize themselves to a deeper level of planning and action. Some examples of potential opportunities are attached in Appendix A of the guidelines. Preference will be given to applications who demonstrate community support.
Principles of MACAW:
-Community Driven and Community Based: The voices of Aboriginal women, men and children must be heard and this will ensure that strategies and initiatives are truly responsive; services are accessible and where appropriate community based.
-Integrity: Drawing on Aboriginal cultures and traditions is essential to creating culturally appropriate policy and programs.
-Partnership: Collaboration, partnership and coordination at the community, regional, provincial and federal levels is needed to end violence.
-Awareness: Sharing knowledge, history, skills and understanding will build support and momentum for ending violence.
-Safety: special attention must be made to ensure that all services and supports for Aboriginal women and girls are provided in ways that support their physical and emotional safety.
