FCM and the Government of Canada announce funding for municipalities and their partners through the Green Municipal Fund’s Community Efficiency Financing (CEF) initiative.

CEF will help communities of all sizes implement innovative local financing programs to directly help homeowners cut their greenhouse gas emissions, make their homes more comfortable and affordable while helping keep the local economy moving.

The $300-million Community Efficiency Financing initiative is funded by the Government of Canada as part of its $950-million investment in FCM’s Green Municipal Fund (GMF).
