Applications are now being accepted for the 2019 Urban Communities Partnering for Reconciliation (UCPR) pilot program.
A pilot funding program was identified to support Indigenous people’s right to cultural self-determination within the context of an urban environment and to align with the provincial government’s efforts to strengthen the public’s understanding of reconciliation as a key to help influence positive change in the lives of Indigenous citizens.
Eligible Indigenous organizations and local governments have the opportunity to receive funding to create opportunities for in-person dialogue and relationship building. These opportunities can help to advance collaborative reconciliation plans, protocols, agreements or future projects.
Applications for funding will be accepted until May 24, 2019.
For more information on program guidelines and how to apply, please visit the Union of BC Municipalities’ website.
