Program
Response
1. Consider moving longstanding items from the comprehensive funding agreement to the Grant Agreement to reduce reporting burden to the MFN. The Department is currently reviewing the request and will be working with program sectors to determine the feasibility/possibility of including Contribution funding items into the annual Grant as a part of the base amount. Completion:

June 2011
Status: Underway

Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2011: The use of grant funding agreement is currently being discussed by AANDC Senior Management and work continues with respect to determining criteria to be considered when evaluating a recipient's eligibility for this funding approach.

AES: Underway (require new expected completion date)
2. Consider putting in place a mechanism for funding level review that is based on community specific factors and needs rather than the formula approach commonly used by INAC with other funding agreement approaches. A review of the current processes used for determining Grant base funding amounts, and consideration of program funding calculation methodologies currently used by INAC will be required prior to further discussion with the community with respect to the acceptance of this recommendation. Completion: June 2011 Status: Underway

Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2011: Region has completed its analysis and is currently seeking concurrence of the recommendation from HQ program sectors.

AES: Underway (require new expected completion date)
3. Explore the opportunity to make a grant funding arrangement, similar to the MFN Grant Agreement, available to other eligible First Nations. INAC is currently assessing the options of utilizing a Grant Funding approach for First Nations through the implementation of the new Policy on Transfer Payments, which comes into effect, April 1, 2011. Completion:

March 2012
Status: No Action to Date

Update/Rationale:
As of 30/09/2011: This activity should be undertaken as part of the implementation of PTP and the increased use of the Grant approach. Consideration for funding calculation methodologies should be nationally agreed upon and included in a grant funding model.
