The Lethbridge College has received a significant federal grant that will be disbursed over three years for a new research project using art and Blackfoot world-views to support marginalized populations as they reintegrate into the community.

The research project is called the Community Integration through Art – Pissatsinaskssini, (CITAP) Program. This project is being funded by a College and Community Social Innovation Fund grant, which is a joint Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and Social Sciences and Humanity Research Council of Canada grant for $360,000 over the three-year life of the project.
