The Manitoba government is accepting applications for the Conservation and Climate Fund. The size of the fund is $1.5 million.

“This fund will generate new green projects for a cleaner environment, climate adaptation and low-carbon economic growth, supporting emission reductions under our carbon savings account as well as economic recovery,” said Environment, Climate and Parks Minister Jeff Wharton.

In 2021, the fund supported nine Manitoba organizations and projects ranging from converting waste into useable energy products, supporting composting and advancing zero emissions and active transportation, to climate adaptation of wetlands and nutrient reduction in the Lake Winnipeg basin.

The application criteria are based on pillars and keystones of the Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan.

Grants will be available for selected projects that support priorities and align with at least one of three categories:

  • Clean technology
  • Water
  • Nature and resilient landscapes

Eligible applicants include incorporated non-profit organizations, Northern and Indigenous communities, academic and educational institutions, municipalities, and businesses.

Apply for funding by June 17, 2022.
