The Conservation and Climate Fund supports local green initiatives that align with Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan priorities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, address climate change and promote sustainable development. Funding is awarded through a competitive outcomes-based grant process. Incorporated non-profit organizations, Indigenous communities, academic and educational institutions, municipalities and businesses can apply for a grant of up to $150,000.
Eligible projects must fit in one or more of the fund’s categories of climate and green technology, water, and nature and resilient landscapes. The Climate and Green Plan Implementation Office will lead the assessment process to review and rank applications based on project benefits, viability and organizational capacity and funding.
Work on many of the priority actions are already underway or completed, with work on other priority actions scheduled to begin over the next two years.
Updated Conservation and Climate Fund grant information, including an online application form, will be available in the coming weeks through the Manitoba Grants Online portal at www.gov.mb.ca/grants/.
