Province Unveils New Conservation And Climate Fund

The Manitoba government is unveiling its new Conservation and Climate Fund that will provide up to $600,000 this fiscal year to organizations for local green initiatives that support priorities of the Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan.
 
“As Manitoba continues to restart our economy and create jobs, we want to ensure we keep on track to become Canada’s cleanest, greenest, most climate-resilient province,” said Conservation and Climate Minister Sarah Guillemard. “This fund will generate new project ideas for cleaner water, climate adaptation and low-carbon economic growth.”
 
The application criteria is drawn from the pillars and keystones of the Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan.
 
Grants will be available for projects that support current priorities and fit in one or more of the following categories:
- climate and green technology,
- water, and
- nature and resilient landscapes.
 
Eligible applicants include:
- incorporated non-profit organizations,
- academic and educational institutions,
- Manitoba municipalities,
- Northern Affairs and Indigenous communities in Manitoba, and
- businesses.
 
The first application intake is now live and closes July 31.
