The TH Citizen Benefit Fund was established by Chief Isaac Group of Companies and funded by our partners in order to support Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Citizens especially in educational pursuits. There are 5 major areas identified that these funds are to target:

  1. Education & Training – for education or training opportunities that build capacity in our community. Maximum $3,000
  2. Health & Wellness – for activities that promote a happier and healthier way of living. This includes physical, mental and spiritual health. Maximum: $250 for reimbursement of supplies, tools or equipment; $1000 for reimbursement of program development fees. 
  3. Arts & Culture – for events or activities that are rooted in Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in culture. Maximum: $250 for reimbursement of supplies, tools or equipment; $1000 for reimbursement of program development fees. 
  4. Youth Engagement – for activities that encourage community engagement and development of Citizens aged 15-24. Maximum: $250 for reimbursement of supplies, tools or equipment; $1000 for reimbursement of program development fees. 
  5. Elders’ Support Financial support for TH Citizens; aged 55 or older. Financial assistance for mainly rent, utilities, or home upgrades. Maximum reimbursement of $250. These payments will be conveniently made directly to the landlord and/or utility company.

Funds are available to all TH Citizens, in and out of the community, on organizations that support or are run by TH citizens. Priority allocation will be given to Citizens who have not yet accessed the Fund and or pursuing education or training. Citizens should expect to only access the fund once. Receipts will need to be provided for reimbursement.

The TH CBF will not provide reimbursement or fund fuel expenses or the purchases of motorized vehicles/recreational vehicles.

For parents submitting on behalf of their children, please be aware that it could impact their eligibility on future applications. TH Citizens aged 15+ are expected to submit their own application.

Applications are assessed on financial need and the community impact they make. The assessment is made by the Citizen Benefit Fund’s Committee made up of TH Citizens’, Chief Isaac staff and Chief Isaac’s partner’s representatives. Disbursements are made on a quarterly basis and application assessments will happen in the last month of each quarter.
