The SARF Pilot Project: As an independent organization with flexible administrative procedures, the FNHC sought to reduce the SARF payment processing time by administering payments on behalf of the federal government. The FNHC worked with the regional office of the First Nations Intuit Health Branch (FNIHB) to develop a pilot project and began processing SARF funds in mid-2019. The pilot project was fully established by the fall of 2019. since that time, the FNHC has processed between $300,000 and $1.5 million in SARF payments each month.
