MNBC is Excited to Announce the Launch of its new Chartered Community Project Proposal Process


MNBC is excited to announce the launch of its new Chartered Community Project Proposal process. Chartered Communities are encouraged to submit applications for capital projects that support community development and improve Métis well-being.

MNBC is now accepting Round 1 Chartered Community Project Proposals. Chartered Communities seeking less than $60,000 of funding for projects that will be completed within 6 months of grant dispersal are eligible for Round 1 funding. Applications will be accepted until May 31, 2024.

Round 2 funding for larger projects is scheduled to open in the summer of 2024. Details on Round 2 funding will be announced at a later date.

How It Works:

MNBC’s evaluation process for Chartered Community Project Proposals considers several key factors to ensure that proposed projects align with MNBC’s mission and goals. The evaluation of Chartered Community Project Proposals considers alignment with MNBC’s 2023-2027 Strategic Plan, community impact and needs, and the project’s feasibility.

Chartered Communities are also required to submit a proposed budget and a resolution of support for the project application from their Chartered Community Board of Directors. Applicants are encouraged to download the Application Checklist to ensure they have included all required documentation prior to submitting their application.

Each application will undergo a thorough evaluation process by our review committee. Applications will then be passed onto MNBC’s Board of Directors for final review and prioritization.

Following final decisions from the Board of Directors, MNBC’s Ministry of Community Services will inform successful Chartered Communities when they can expect to receive funding.

Additionally, the Ministry of Community Services will reach out to unsuccessful Chartered Communities to provide Board of Director feedback regarding their applications.
