Pilot projects: Stormwater quality, community project │ Federation of Canadian Municipalities

Value

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

Description

We fund pilot projects for initiatives that can potentially allow a community to remove 60% of total suspended solids (TSS) or a significant amount of other contaminants (e.g., E.coli, salt, grease) from its stormwater runoff. This funding helps Canadian cities and communities of all sizes protect local bodies of water through stormwater treatment.

Pilot projects assess solutions in real-life conditions. They evaluate either a small-scale version of a project or a full-scale, replicable version.

Eligible Applicants

1. All Canadian municipal governments
2. 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

This funding is intended for community-run initiatives. Examples of what you might pilot:

  • Permeable pavement
  • Bioretention planters
  • Prevention or treatment of contaminants associated with road salt
  • Swales, retention ponds, infiltration techniques
  • Catch basin inserts (e.g., sediment and grit-settling filters)
