New grant program furthers action on climate change

climategrantprogram_v5_tw_13The provincial government is investing $600,000 to support all Albertans – young and old, rural and urban – as they learn about and work together to address climate change.

The Community Environment Action grant program will help non-profit groups design and deliver projects that will help Albertans understand the effects of climate change and why action is important. They will also provide opportunities for communities and individuals to come together to work and make decisions to help reduce emissions.

Eligible groups include community associations, stewardship groups, youth and senior groups, Indigenous organizations, teacher resource organizations, and school-based associations that deliver educational programming on climate change.

As with all other programs and initiatives that support Alberta’s transition to a low-carbon economy, money for this grant will come from carbon revenues.
