The Community Access Program (CAP) provides financial contributions and technical assistance for:
- Access roads
- Docks and wharves
Project proposals are accepted year-round and should be supported by community leadership. All communities in the NWT are encouraged to apply for program funding for construction projects that meet the following community needs:
- Access roads to hunting, fishing, wood harvesting, and community recreational areas.
- Trails connecting to the community for walking, hiking, recreational and traditional activities (camps, archaeological sites).
- Docks and wharves to support boating and marine activities, as well as harvesting (including fishing and hunting) and recreational uses.
- Winter access to granular sources.
The program is application‐based and funding is allocated according to the merit of a project proposal and level of community support received. Project proposals are accepted year-round and must be supported by community leadership.
The following is a guide to the information required when submitting a proposal to the Department of Infrastructure requesting contribution funding from the Community Access Program. The Department will evaluate proposals based on the information provided.
If a proposal meets CAP requirements and is approved, but insufficient budget monies remain in a particular fiscal year to proceed, the proposal is deferred forward to the next fiscal year.
