The CleanBC Communities Fund (CCF) provides provincial and federal funding for community infrastructure projects that reduce reliance on fossil fuels. The fund supports cost-shared infrastructure projects that focus on management of renewable energy, improved access to clean-energy transportation, improved energy efficiency of buildings and the generation of clean energy.
The CCF is a component of the federal Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program’s (ICIP) Green Infrastructure – Climate Change Mitigation sub-stream, with an overall focus on reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
The first two intakes under the program provided up to $109 million in support of clean community projects across B.C.
The third intake of the CleanBC Communities Fund releases a new round of funding of up to $134 million (combined federal and provincial funding), starting January 26, 2022.
The CleanBC Communities Fund is open to:
Federal and provincial contributions vary depending on the type of applicant. See full funding details and eligibility criteria in the CleanBC Communities Fund Program Guide (PDF).
