Newly Available FCM Funding

Newly Available FCM Funding

Call for applications now open to municipalities

FCM's climate change staff grants provide up to $125,000 to supplement the salary of a new or existing municipal employee who will work on initiatives to improve adaptation to local climate change impacts or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.


Lack of staff resources is one of the biggest barriers for communities looking to take action on climate change. These grants, disbursed over two years, help municipalities address staffing gaps and produce lasting improvements in their operations related to climate change. 

Communities can use the funding to dedicate staff to activities such as developing or refreshing GHG emissions reduction or climate change adaptation plans, creating GHG emission inventories or adding climate change practices into daily municipal processes.

Further information on eligibility requirements can be found here.
