Nunavut Harvesters Support Programs (NHSP) are intended to relieve poverty among Inuit in Nunavut and to preserve and advance Inuit harvesting culture, heritage and traditional ways of life by providing Inuit in need with funding assistance to purchase harvesting equipment.
The NHSP Harvesting Equipment Program provides Inuit in Nunavut who are in need with funding assistance to make harvesting equipment and tools more affordable so they can participate in traditional harvesting activities. An applicant is considered in need if they need financial assistance to purchase harvesting equipment required to support their family and/or community. They are also considered in need if they have suffered equipment loss due to an unavoidable natural disaster.
Funding will be provided in three areas:
- Funding assistance for the purchase of small harvesting equipment;
- Funding assistance for the purchase of safety equipment; and
- Funding assistance for disaster
