EcoAction Community Funding Program

Ecoaction is a funding program for community groups in Canada that have positive impacts on the environment. Run by the Canadian Government since 1995, EcoAction encourages project submissions that will protect, rehabilitate or enhance the natural environment. Projects require matching funds or in-kind support from other sponsors. Ecoaction supports projects that address the following themes: climate change, clean water, clean air and protection of wildlife. Half the budget is devoted to climate change. Submission deadlines are February 1st and October 1st annually. The maximum amount available per project is $100,000. :: EcoAction [by Justin Thomas]
