The Indigenous-Led Data Research Projects Program funds innovative Indigenous-led approaches to improving data methodologies specific to missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, including initiatives that:
- work to develop qualitative distinctions or identity-based indicators
- address existing methodological gaps for groups who are underserviced or underrepresented in data
- work to define safety through Indigenous ways of understanding
All of these will ultimately work to improve existing data and expand data related to missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people.
Selected eligible projects may be approved up to a maximum of $50,000 annually. An open call for proposals will take place in late spring of each year of the duration of the program.
The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021.
