1. Equity – targeting resources to create balance, trying to respond evenly for the same need over time.
2. Relevance – a project that is meaningful, focused, and in line with existing needs.
3. Appropriateness – a timely project, fitting with current circumstances and conditions.
4. Evidence-Based – a project that has been shown to work effectively, and/or has precedence.
5. Innovation – breaking new ground, offering new ways of doing things.
6. Accountability – a project that can be justified, with responsible actions.
7. Cost Benefit – a project that offers a good return for the investment.
8. Time Scale – a project that is achievable within the indicated time period.

The IGA does not have a lower or upper limit on the amount of funding it will consider.
Organizations serving the residents of Newfoundland and Labrador are eligible. The traditional IGA service area is the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland (Reef’s Harbour and North) and all of Labrador, except for Labrador City, Wabush, and Churchill Falls.
The IGA will entertain proposals for projects outside this area if there is clear evidence of direct benefit to the residents of this area.
Examples include the major health care centers outside the region where referrals from within may occur, such as Daffodil Place, Ronald McDonald House, Dr. H. Bliss Murphy Cancer Care Center, and the like.
In general, the IGA will avoid projects that:
- Continue a defunct program
- Provide for general maintenance and upkeep
- Last for a period of more than three years
- Contain salary costs for permanent staff
- Provide supplies normally funded by government
- Contain evidence of direct private benefit
- Cover costs of warranties and/or service contracts on equipment
- IGA will not entertain applications from single religious affiliations.
- Benefit must be for all community members brought together for common purpose(s), and not just one identifiable religion.
- Applications must be under the guise of community development, as opposed to buildings and construction-type activity.
IGA does not wish to fund costs of warranties and/or service contracts for equipment purchases.
All applications must be received at the IGA General Business Office by the application deadline of November 1st of any calendar year. Please do not fax applications for funding to IGA.
Final decisions on proposals are made at a meeting of the IGA Board of Directors, which has traditionally been held in mid-May of the following year (about six months after the application deadline).
In some instances, matching funds from other sources may be required by the IGA.
