Call for Proposals for Supportive Living Community Partnership Program

Community-based organizations are advised that applications for 2011-12 Supportive Living Community Partnership Program funding are now being accepted. This program provides operating grants to non-profit organizations to assist with the development and implementation of services and supports aimed at reducing chronic homelessness.

“This program has created unprecedented opportunities for the Provincial Government to work with community partners to develop options for people who face multiple barriers in their efforts to secure housing,” said the Honourable Darin King, Minister of Human Resources, Labour and Employment and Lead Minister for the Poverty Reduction Strategy. “Funding from this program is enabling organizations to think big and deliver innovative solutions, which is why the Provincial Government doubled funding for the program from $2.4 million to $4.8 million in Budget 2011 Standing Strong: For Prosperity. For Our Future. For Newfoundland and Labrador.”

Grants available to non-profit organizations are expected to meet one or more of the following objectives:

A copy of the application form can be obtained by visiting www.gov.nl.ca/hrle/forcommunitypartners/slcpp.html, sending an e-mail to slcpp@gov.nl.ca, or by calling 729-2672. The deadline for applications is October 28, 2011.

The Supportive Living Community Partnership Program is funded through the Poverty Reduction Strategy. Launched in 2006, the strategy is a comprehensive government-wide approach to promoting self-reliance, opportunity, and access to key supports for people in vulnerable circumstances. The strategy currently includes more than 80 ongoing initiatives that were informed by input from the public and developed by 14 government departments and agencies.
