Ungaluk Safer Communities program – Call for project applications now open

The Ungaluk Safer Communities program was set up in February 2007 as a result of the Sanarrutik Agreement granted by the Quebec Government to Makivik Corporation and Kativik Regional Government (KRG). Makivik Corporation currently manages the program. Ungaluk is the Inuit term for first level of snow blocks as a foundation for an igloo, and it is the first Inuit-run crime prevention program.

The Ungaluk Safer Communities program is now open for receiving project applications under its 2017/2018 fiscal year. This call for project applications will close on September 2, 2016 at 5:00pm. Any application received after this date and time will not be considered. Decisions on projects will be made in early December 2016.

If there is any remaining funding available after this call, a second call will take place in January 2017.

However, we strongly recommend that applicants send in their project applications during this first call.

Once approved, projects funded under Ungaluk can start any time between January 1 2017 and December 31 2017.
