The Board administers a Participant Funding Program (PFP), which provides financial assistance to individuals, Indigenous groups, landowners, and non-industry not-for-profit groups to facilitate public participation in certain project hearings and environmental assessments of designated projects.

On 16 March 2017, the National Energy Board announced $250,000 to assist individuals and groups with their participation in the environmental assessment (and later the hearing) for the Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission Project. The PFP received 16 applications requesting $1,197,967. After reviewing the applications, the PFP recommended awarding to all. The Executive Vice President, Regulatory approved the recommendation. Indigenous groups account for 72% of the funding awarded.
