The Six Nations of the Grand River Economic Development Trust (EDT) is an application based, community investment trust available to groups who address community priorities within Six Nations. The EDT is the mechanism, in which surplus profits generated by the Six Nations of the Grand River Development Corporation (SNGRDC), are invested into the Six Nations community for the collective benefit of its members. This model of community investment was a direct result of the 2011 community engagement study, “We Gather Our Voices.”
EDT Trustees are responsible for reviewing, scoring and prioritizing applications for community investment. Trustees consist of Rachel Martin (Chair), Cathy General, Jill Hill, Julie Hill, and Shirley Squire.
In 2017, the EDT will invest $1.5 million into the Six Nations Community. Applications will be released on Monday, March 6, 2017 with a deadline of April 20, 2017 by 4 pm. Another Call for Applications is set to be released in August 2017 for projects taking place in 2018.
