Individual Inuit and community groups from those communities are invited to submit proposals for projects that will run from mid-August 2019 to March 31, 2020. There is about $25,000 available to each of the five communities.
QCAP was one of the programs selected by the QIA Board of Directors in October 2017 to be part of the Benefits Fund spending. Money for the Benefits Fund is derived from the Legacy Fund, as the Legacy Fund grows its revenues go to the Benefits Fund to increase programs for Inuit.
QCAP supports community-based cultural programs. Although land and sewing programs are given priority, QIA will also consider other Inuit cultural programs.
