Health Nexus has received funding from the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, (MCCSS) to distribute small subsidies. These subsidies are meant to help build and mobilize communities by bringing together families, caregivers and individuals experiencing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in the form of a Support Group.
Applications for subsidies up to $4,500 were accepted in October for the first cycle of funding, and were used to create new, or build upon current FASD support group activities within communities. The first cycle began in the fall of 2018 and is scheduled to be complete March 31, 2019.
There will be two cycles of funding available through this project. Information about the second cycle subsidy process and how to apply is available here.
