Northern and Aboriginal Crime Prevention Fund (NACPF)
The Crime Prevention Action Fund (CPAF)
The CPAF 2021 Call for Applications is now closed and is no longer accepting applications. The deadline to submit an application was on October 6, 2021, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time (PT).
The Northern and Aboriginal Crime Prevention Fund (NACPF) assists communities experiencing multiple risk factors and other challenges that affect their ability to respond to crime issues, such as remote geographical location and limited capacity. It achieves this by providing time-limited funding to support culturally sensitive initiatives that foster the development and implementation of crime prevention approaches in Aboriginal communities, both on-and off-reserve and in the North. In addition, it assists building the knowledge and capacity required to develop or adapt culturally sensitive, effective ways to prevent crime.
In order to effect positive changes in risk and protective factors and foster crime prevention in Northern and Indigenous communities, the NACPF will support:
- the adaptation, development and implementation of innovative and promising culturally sensitive crime prevention practices which address known risk and protective factors to reduce offending among at-risk children and youth, and high risk offenders in communities;
- the dissemination of knowledge and the development of tools and resources for Indigenous and Northern populations; and
- capacity building as a means to explore ways to develop or implement culturally sensitive crime prevention practices among Aboriginal and northern populations.
