EcoAction call for proposals


The EcoAction Community Funding application deadline has been extended to January 16, 2019.

Environment and Climate Change Canada's (ECCC) EcoAction Community Funding Program is now accepting applications for funding until January 16, 2019 for projects beginning summer 2019.

Funding is available for new projects that engage Canadians and clearly demonstrate measurable, positive results related to the key environmental priority: fresh water.

Your project must include one related priority result:

  1. Canadians contribute to the improvement of water quality through:
    1. the diversion and reduction of harmful substances and plastic waste in fresh water;
    2. the improvement and restoration of aquatic habitat.
  2. Canadians contribute to the conservation and sustainable use of Canada’s fresh water.

Preference will be given to proposals that engage Indigenous Peoples, youth or small businesses. All proposals must fully meet program requirements.

Please refer to the Grants and Contributions Enterprise Management System (GCEMS) to obtain a copy of the 2019 Applicant's Guide and to complete the online application form.
