Funding for sustainability, climate change and asset management initiatives

FCM offers grants and loans to Canadian cities and communities to help improve the quality of life for residents. Our funding helps municipalities adapt to climate change, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, make better investments in municipal infrastructure and improve the quality of our communities' air, water and soil. Discover what we can offer your municipality.

Grants and loans to meet your municipality’s needs

FCM offers grants for plans, studies and pilot projects, as well as loans and grants for capital projects, in three core areas: sustainability, climate change and asset management.
