COVID-19 and the Inuit Child First Initiative

If Inuit children experience unmet needs related to COVID-19, families can submit a request to the Inuit Child First Initiative to seek additional support. If a number of families within a community are facing a similar situation, community and regional organizations can submit group requests.
The process and requirements for applying to the Inuit Child First Initiative remain the same. There must be an identified unmet need to be addressed for a specific child or specific group of children.
Each request will be considered on a case by case basis. The child or children’s need should be outlined in the request, and the product or services requested should match the needs identified.
