Applications due March 3
Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) has announced a series of new environmental funding opportunities, with requests for applications due by March 3, including the EcoAction Community Funding Program.
Up to $100,000 in funding is available for new projects that engage Canadians and clearly demonstrates measurable, positive results related to fresh water through the EcoAction Community Funding Program.
You may be eligible if, through your project, Canadians are contributing to the improvement of water quality through the diversion and reduction of harmful substances in freshwater.
Or, you may be eligible if your project helps Canadians contribute to the improvement of freshwater management and increases climate resilience through action involving the development and/or restoration of natural infrastructure.
This program is designed for non-profit and non-government groups and organizations, and the Government of Canada prioritizes projects that engage Indigenous Peoples, youth, or small businesses. Eligible groups include environmental groups; community groups; youth and seniors groups; community-based associations; service clubs; and Indigenous organizations.
You may be part of an ineligible group, including businesses, educational institutions, a C3 organization (like a corporation, trust, or unincorporated association exempt from federal income tax), crown corporations, individuals, or a municipal, provincial or territorial government. However, you may still be eligible for funding if you partner with an eligible organization.
Note, this funding is for projects beginning summer 2021.
