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, as well as in May for the second cycle.
There have been two cycles of funding thus far through this project. For information about the subsidy application process and a list of subsidized groups, click here.
