Call for Proposals – Emergency Management Preparedness and Response

The Indigenous Advisory and Monitoring Committee’s (IAMC or the Committee) 2020-21 budget includes $14.5M for the Capacity Funding Program, which supports Community and Committee-led initiatives. Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Committee looked at how to best disperse funds to Indigenous communities effectively and quickly to respond to emergency management needs using an all-hazards approach.

The access to additional funding to enhance the community-based capacity for emergency response capabilities, will allow for a more resilient community in the event of any type of emergency. By enhancing emergency response capability, for the community as whole, the community will be better able to engage with Trans Mountain, in response and recovery in the event of an incident, and ensure community concerns are understood and addressed by Trans Mountain.

The Committee decided on a Call for Proposal for Projects less than $50K aligned with the Committee priority of Emergency Preparedness and Response. This Call for Proposals has a streamlined application, review and evaluation process, which will allow for a quick disbursement of funding for approved projects to the communities.

The IAMC has set aside $3.25M of the budget for this Call for Proposals. The deadline to submit a funding application has been extended to November 30, 2020.

Below are links to the application guide, a completed sample application and the blank application for your proposal.
