Pilot project: Retrofit or new construction of sustainable affordable housing | Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM):


Grants of up to $500,000 to cover up to 80% of your eligible costs.


We’re seeking leading-edge pilot projects that generate significant GHG reductions for affordable housing providers and their communities. These projects may test solutions through a small-scale version of a capital project, or a full-scale, replicable application of a new approach. Pilots can include solutions implemented in other jurisdictions with positive results that have yet to be tested in your community.

Eligible Applicants

  • Canadian municipal governments (e.g., towns, cities, regions, districts and local boards thereof)
  • Municipally owned corporations, such as municipal housing service providers; or
  • Non-profit, mission-driven affordable housing providers, including cooperatives.

Eligible Expenses

We fund pilot projects to test innovative and ambitious technical, process- or business-model solutions to improve environmental outcomes. These projects provide the opportunity to influence future projects for an organization, or for the affordable housing sector more broadly, through the sharing of lessons learned and knowledge.

Deadline Date

  Applications are accepted year-round, though this offer will close when all funding has been allocated.
