Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund (IPRF) recognizes that Indigenous communities and organizations, throughout the pandemic, met the urgent and critical needs of their communities with the assistance of the bundles provided to them by IPRF. As the pandemic diminishes, and the world adjusts, we are in a place of recovery and renewal. What lessons have we learned? What will we carry with us? What do we restore that was lost because of Covid?
Today and going forward, IPRF’s commitment is to enhance the “Resilience” of communities and organizations responding to the long-standing needs that were urgent prior to Covid-19 but were left unaddressed.
We continue to use our approach of 'money as medicine.' Keeping that in mind, IPRF reminds you to consider your customary way of living off the land, using the resources, taking only what you need, using all of what you take, and ensuring resources are left for those who follow you. We do this to provide support to as many communities as possible.IPRF respects that "community knows what community needs."
Support ranges from $5,000 to $30,000.
