Pilot project: Signature initiative │ Federation of Canadian Municipalities

Value

Up to $500,000 to cover up to 50% of eligible costs

Description

Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Signature initiative funding helps Canadian cities and communities of all sizes pilot environmental projects that reduce GHG emissions and protect the air, water or land. This funding is designed to accommodate transformative, best-in-class municipal projects, meaning they’re highly innovative and impactful.

You may pilot any initiative (or compare initiatives) in any sector (or in multiple sectors). Your pilot project’s outcomes should help you decide whether to implement a full-scale, permanent version of the project.

Eligible Applicants

  • All Canadian municipal governments
  • Their project partners, which includes:
    • Private sector entities
    • Indigenous communities
    • Municipally-owned corporations
    • A regional, provincial or territorial organization delivering municipal services
    • Non-governmental organizations
    • Not-for-profit organizations
    • Research institutes (e.g., universities)

Eligible Expenses

Examples of what you might pilot include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced, emerging and adaptive technologies
  • Innovative financing mechanisms and business models (e.g., property assessed clean energy programs, innovative utility charges)
  • Capacity building programs that generate direct environmental benefits (e.g., green job skills training)
  • Projects and programs that generate environmental, economic and other benefits for the broader community
  • Making it easier to implement environmental initiatives (e.g., clarifying policy change requirements; developing municipal bylaws such as a green procurement policy or private sector sustainability incentives)
  • Enabling greater adoption of sustainable infrastructure (e.g., demonstrating new products such as shared electric autonomous vehicles, creating smart grid projects that enable more integration of renewable generation within the community)
