As part of a commitment to a cleaner B.C., the governments of Canada and British Columbia have announced a combined investment of $134 million to the CleanBC Communities Fund (CCF).
First launched in 2019, the CCF funds infrastructure projects that focus on management of renewable energy, improved access to clean-energy transportation (for example, electric vehicles), improved energy efficiency in buildings and the generation of clean energy. Since its inception, this program has provided up to $109 million in support of clean community projects across B.C.
Previously funded projects include:
- waste heat recovery systems for Vancouver’s False Creek neighbourhood and Richmond’s Oval Village community
- clean hydropower to reduce Nuxalk Nation’s reliance on diesel
- electric vehicle charging network expansions across the province and
- energy-efficient building upgrades for aquatic centres in Kamloops and Prince George.
The CCF is currently accepting applications for the third intake. Deadline to apply is May 25, 2022.
To provide support as you develop your funding proposal, the CCF has organized a series of webinars. Register through the links below:
- February 7 – Intro webinar for local government and non-profit applicants
- February 8 – Intro webinar for Indigenous applicants
- February 22 – Greenhouse gases methodology webinar
