There are a large number of Nain residents interested in participating in the proposed Community Enhancement Program.
The program would give Nain residents enough hours to qualify for employment insurance benefits for the winter.
Dasi Ikkusek is the Town Manager for the Nain Inuit Community Government (NICG).
She says around 25 people have expressed interest in participating in the program.
Now it’s just waiting for the proposals to be approved.
Ikkusek says they have proposals in for two programs: a craft development program and a make-work project.
The provincial Department of Municipal Affairs is in the process of reviewing the applications for the program now.
The NICG hopes to have a response in the near future.
Ikkusek adds that they are still accepting the names of Nain residents interested in acquiring more hours.
