Green Municipal Fund
New funding offer launches April 1, 2015
After extensive research and consultation, FCM is renewing its Green Municipal Fund (GMF) program offerings to remain responsive to the evolving needs of municipalities and their partners while continuing to manage the high demand for available funding.
With the updated funding offer, and a wide range of integrated knowledge services, FCM continues its commitment to helping municipalities achieve outcomes that respond to local sustainability challenges and priorities, deliver better value for money on infrastructure investments, and protect the environment while generating economic and social benefits.
The Government of Canada endowed FCM with $550 million to create the Green Municipal Fund as a long-term, sustainable source of funding and knowledge for municipal governments and their partners in municipal environmental projects.
