Aboriginal Academic Achievement (AAA) Grant

The Aboriginal Academic Achievement (AAA) Grant is an important component of the Indigenous Education priority for Manitoba Education and Training. The grant is a supplemental fund provided to assist school divisions with current programming and the implementation of new programs that target academic success for Indigenous students. This grant is administered by the Indigenous Inclusion Directorate and is included in the school division planning and reporting process. Each school division must submit an AAA report and plan by October 31 annually. The plan must focus on strategies which result in measurable increases in Aboriginal student achievement, particularly related to literacy and numeracy for a minimum of 50% of the grant allocation. The remainder of the grant, if any, can be used to support educationally and culturally relevant programming.
