Are you looking for funding for a project with an innovative approach to environmental issues in your municipality?

Watch the recordings of our webinar series to learn about Green Municipal Fund (GMF) funding opportunities and eligibility criteria for environmental projects.

During each webinar, an experienced GMF advisor gives a short presentation on a specific sector of GMF funding: energy, transportation, waste, water and brownfields. Participants then ask questions and discuss ideas directly with the advisors during a Q&A period.

You will learn about:
  • What types of initiatives are eligible for funding
  • How FCM can help you apply for GMF grants and loans for your initiative
  • Examples of successful GMF-funded municipal projects in each sector
