Grants of up to $50,000 to Canada nonprofits for services and programs that focus on HIV prevention education for Aboriginal men, women, and youth. The funding source is particularly interested in proposals that place an emphasis on targeting Aboriginal youth. Proposals should aim to respond to a community-identified need, build on community strengths, and be driven by the community it serves.

Please note that for the purposes of these grants, the terms Indigenous and Aboriginal are both used to respectfully include First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples in Canada.

Proposals must not duplicate or replicate programs or services already offered in the geographic area served by the applicant organization.

Proposals should implement the following GIPA/MIPA Principles:

- Recognizing the important contribution Aboriginal people living with HIV/AIDS (APHAs) can make in response to the epidemic; and
- Creating space within society for the meaningful engagement and active participation of APHAs in all aspects of that response.

Proposals based on Indigenous culture and teachings are strongly encouraged.

A proposal’s focus within the Indigenous community can range from broadly-based to highly focused. However, proposals must still define the demographic or lived-experience which best describes the primary group of Indigenous people the project seeks to reach.

Examples are as follows:

- Indigenous community in the agency’s catchment area • Indigenous community off-reserve
- Indigenous community on-reserve
- Indigenous men in the agency’s catchment area
- Indigenous men off-reserve
- Indigenous men on-reserve
- Indigenous women in the agency’s catchment area
- Indigenous women off-reserve
- Indigenous women on-reserve
- Indigenous youth in the agency’s catchment area
- Indigenous youth off-reserve
- Indigenous youth on-reserve
- Indigenous men living with HIV/AIDS
- Indigenous women living with HIV/AIDS
- Indigenous youth living with HIV/AIDS
