IAPO has embarked on an important funding program aimed at helping initiate and support the development of 4-H clubs in Ontario First Nations communities.
The 4-H for First Nations program provides financial support to First Nations 4-H clubs to help cover the costs associated with agriculturally related projects. By providing funding the goal is to reduce barriers of participation and help ensure First Nations youth have the opportunity to learn and experience basic food production. Skills and experience
they might build upon into the future.

4-H offers numerous agriculturally related projects for First Nations youth ranging from growing your own food to beef projects. Eligible clubs will be provided grants for project materials and supplies. 4-H for First Nations aims to support ten club projects.
