    Doulas for Aboriginal Families Grant Program

    The Doulas for Aboriginal Families Grant Program (DAFGP) is offered by the BC Association of Aboriginal Friendship Centres, First Nations Health Authority, and the BC Ministry of Health. The goal of the program is to increase healthy birth outcomes for Indigenous families by removing the cost barrier to accessing doula services.

    The grant program provides Indigenous families living in BC up to $1,000.00 (maximum) of coverage for doula support with each pregnancy.

    Since 2013, the DAFGP has funded +1,300 pregnancies, and currently has +200 registered doulas.
