||Since 1995, Environment Canada's EcoAction Community Funding Program has provided financial support to community groups for projects that have measurable, positive impacts on the environment. Funding support can be requested for projects that have an action focus, a community capacity building focus, or a combination of both objectives.
EcoAction encourages project submissions that will protect, rehabilitate or enhance the natural environment, and build the capacity of communities to sustain these activities into the future. EcoAction supports projects that address the following themes: Climate Change; Clean Water; Nature; and Clean Air.
Projects require matching funds or in-kind support from other sponsors. Non-profit groups, such as community groups, environmental groups, aboriginal groups and First Nations councils, service clubs, associations, and youth and seniors' organizations, are eligible to apply.
EcoAction Community Funding Program has moved to one deadline per year. The deadline for submission of proposals is November 1st of each year.
