One year in – Trust 2020 community development programs

October 1, 2021

September 17, 2021 marked one year since Northern Development launched Trust 2020, which introduced a suite of six new community development programs alongside refreshed branding, a new website and online application capabilities.

In the 12 months since the programs have been available to local governments, First Nation governments and non-profits in the Trust’s service region, Northern Development staff have received 84 eligible applications for the new programs, representing a total project value of nearly $35 million. So far, Northern Development has committed more than $8 million to community development projects that have been approved through the six new funding programs.
