The Indigenous Community Corrections Initiative (ICCI) Program Description, Objectives and Eligible Initiatives.

This program provides contributions to Indigenous organizations (on and off-reserve), Indigenous governments and municipalities in collaboration with Indigenous organizations and or communities to develop tailored approaches to community safety that are responsive to the concerns, priorities and unique circumstances of Indigenous communities. Becoming more responsive requires engaging Indigenous communities in identifying issues and developing solutions; building the capacity of Indigenous communities to develop and deliver projects; addressing funding issues; and ensuring that relevant programs are adaptable to the diverse needs of Indigenous communities.

The program contributes to the achievement of departmental legislative, policy development, and consultative objectives. Data collected will be used to determine the impact of the ICCI, and not individual programs, in order to improve its ability to meet the needs of Indigenous offenders. Data collection is important in this area not only to determine whether justice-involved individuals reoffend, but also to determine and share best-practices in the delivery of programs and services.

Please indicate which of the ICCI objective applies to your application (select one):

The program does not support core or ongoing operating expenses defined as financial support that covers basic (core) organizational and administrative costs including salaries, rent, equipment, utilities etc. that are not related to the project.
