BC Community Climate Funding Guide

for Indigenous communities & local governments

An all-in-one guide of funding opportunities for climate action projects in your community.

You spoke, we listened

We have heard loud and clear that finding the right funding can be a challenge.

This guide was created to simplify your search for funding and to quickly connect you to the next opportunity to fund your community project. It’s a one-stop resource to find the best programs available to match projects that increase sustainable energy use and prepare for a changing climate.

Our goal and scope

To provide a comprehensive list of funding opportunities for Indigenous communities and local governments to reach their climate action goals. All programs listed in the guide are eligible for applications from Indigenous communities or local governments; programs for individuals and businesses are not listed.

Looking for a simpler way to find funding for your climate action project? Start here.

Discover which funds you might be eligible for, and find programs that can help get your project moving.
