Budget 2016 announced, starting in 2016-2017: $24.70 million over five years to identify and address climate change related impacts on infrastructure in First Nation communities on reserve.
This program provides funding to First Nation communities located below the 60th parallel to assess and respond to climate change impacts on community infrastructure and emergency management.
The program works with First Nation communities to identify region-specific priorities, impacts, and opportunities for climate change projects. The program prioritizes First Nation communities most impacted by climate change related to sea level rise, flooding, forest fires, and winter road failures. These disruptive and costly impacts present significant challenges to meeting First Nation communities’ infrastructure needs.
There is no deadline to apply. Applications are reviewed on an ongoing basis.
