The funding will assist the recipients to review and comment on the Environmental Impact Statement and to prepare for and participate in the public hearing. Indigenous groups will also receive funding to review the Panel Report.

The funding will also assist recipients to comment on the potential conditions that would be required, if the project is allowed to proceed.

This funding is allocated through the Participant Funding Program administered by the Agency. A funding review committee, independent of the panel process, was established to assess the requests for funding.
