NTIP is funded annually through the Grants for Student Needs (GSN) as part of the Qualifications and Experience Grant. There are two components to the funding for school boards:
- Base amount of $50,000
- Proportional amount which is a “per teacher” allocation multiplied by the number of teachers on Rows 0, 1, and 2 of a board's Teacher Qualifications and Experience Grid from the previous year
Note school authorities receive proportional funding based on their hiring data reported to the Professionalism, Teaching Policy and Standards Branch.
