Valueup to $80,000 per project
The Government of Alberta is providing $4.5 million for Alberta municipalities and Indigenous communities to assess adaptation measures and to create climate resilience plans. This funding will help you reduce negative impacts and leverage opportunities so you can feel secure in your community’s future.
The Climate Resilience Capacity Building Program is developed and administered by the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre, a partnership of Alberta Municipalities, Rural Municipalities of Alberta, and the Government of Alberta.
Municipalities and Indigenous communities in Alberta can submit projects in the first two streams. Only Indigenous communities can apply to the Indigenous Climate Resilience Stream.
To enable broad participation, a total of $160,000 across all streams may be distributed to a single community.
- Plans and assessments may be performed by a qualified, contracted service provider.
- Alternately, we may fund costs related to the development of internal capacity, including, but not limited to: knowledge transfer, workshops, training, contractors, and wage subsidies.
- For participants in the Indigenous Climate Resilience Stream only, we can cover administrative costs incurred through the delivery of the project, up to a maximum of 15 per cent.
Deadline DateFirst-come, first-served basis. Applications are due by March 31, 2023, and all projects must be completed by March 31, 2024.
