First Nations can submit their proposals for COVID-19 expense reimbursement to the First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) until July 31, 2020. The Manitoba First Nations Pandemic Response Team has created the following resources that may be helpful in completing your proposal:

  • An info poster with general information and tips for developing your proposals
  • Budget templates in Excel and Word formats you can use to input your expenses
  • A cheat sheet to help communities identify how expenses were important for COVID-19 public health measures
    Note: FNIHB is requesting this, especially for expenses that might not be so obvious (like cultural programs, land-based initiatives, etc.). Please feel free to copy and paste text from this cheat sheet as needed
  • A sample proposal to give you an idea about how to fill out the templates and other types of expenses that you can include in your submission.
  • FNIHB’s cover letter and guide

If you have any questions or require any assistance in filling out your proposal, please contact:
