More Infrastructure Funding for Small Communities

The Federal & BC Government has created a grant for smaller BC communities to help improve infrastructure.

A community with less than 100,000 people can access funding for cleaner water, better waste management and flooding mitigation. The 272 million dollar investment by the Federal Government and Provincial government will allow communities to apply for this funding. The funding will be available until 2014 as each level of government will invest 136 million dollars.

Eligible applicants may now submit applications for the first round of the Communities Component. The focus of the first intake will be projects related to sewer, water, local roads, tourism infrastructure, short-sea shipping, and short-line rail, as well as flood mitigation.

Projects funded will be selected through a competitive process, with priority given to those demonstrating the principles of sustainability and supporting provincial initiatives such as action on climate change and the objectives in B.C.’s Energy Plan, Living Water Smart and Green Building Code.

Applications are available on the BC Secretariat website at
www.bcbuildingcanadafundcommunities.ca, with a deadline of Sept. 5, 2008.
