We offer grants for municipal environmental projects. Loans are also available to municipalities at competitive rates, and most recipients receive an additional grant of up to 15 percent of their loan amount. Municipal partners may apply for competitive, long-term financing.

Create a plan that builds on your sustainable community plans or strategies you already have in place.

Studies

Pilot projects

Evaluate a small-scale version of your initiative in real-life conditions.

Capital projects

Install a full-scale version of your project (usually done after you've conducted a pilot project).

Asset management grants

Enhance your asset management practices and make informed decisions about your infrastructure.

Partner grants

These are for non-municipal organizations that help FCM implement programs, create resources, or offer training or information-sharing activities.
