Do you know about the Indigenous Climate Action Grants?
Grant Opportunity to support local Indigenous projects and initiatives that help to address the climate crisis.
The Indigenous Climate Action Grant Program, funded by the City of Toronto, offers grants of up to $20,000 to support local Indigenous projects and initiatives that help address the climate crisis.
About the Program
The Indigenous Climate Action Grant is a pilot program created to support the implementation of the City's Transform TO NetZero Strategy, which goal is to reduce community-wide emissions in Toronto to net zero by 2040. The Indigenous Climate Action Grant program encourages the Indigenous community to determine what climate action is needed and to take meaningful action to reduce emissions and realize the co-benefits of a healthy, thriving, and equitable city.
There are two funding streams for this program.
Funding Stream 1 - Up to $7,500 per project
Indigenous-led grassroots groups (two or more people) and collectives, individuals/community projects
Funding Stream 2 - Up to $20,000 per project
Indigenous-led grassroots collectives and individuals/community projects that have a trustee (Indigenous or non-Indigenous trustee)
Non-profit initiatives/organizations with Indigenous project lead(s) directly leading project development and implementation.
