Climate change funding

Welcome to November, Funds Fans!  Today, some good news for First Nation communities concerned about the impacts of climate change.

The 2014–2015 Call for Proposals for the Climate Change Adaptation Program is now open.  Through  the Climate Change Adaptation Program (CCAP), AANDC is supporting Aboriginal  and northern communities to address risks and challenges posed by climate  change impacts and to become more resilient.  Maximum Grant: $100,000  Deadline: January 22nd, 2014.

This  program, delivered by the Climate Change Division, is designed to support Canada’s  commitment to Aboriginal and northern peoples’ pursuit of healthy and  sustainable communities by allowing communities to prepare for challenges  created by a changing environment.

CCAP  is focused on working with organizations, institutions and communities that can  take the lead in assessing and developing management strategies to adapt to the  impacts of a changing climate, undertaking risk and vulnerability assessments,  and identifying appropriate actions required to reduce risks due to a changing  climate and its impact.
