    $150K+ for indigenous climate monitoring projects 

    The impacts of climate change are already being felt across Canada and include social, cultural, ecological and economic implications. Indigenous communities are among the most vulnerable to climate change due to their relationship with the natural world, traditional lifestyles, and in some instances, geographic location.

    The goal of the Indigenous Community-Based Climate Monitoring Program is to support Indigenous peoples in monitoring climate indicators, which will provide the data required to inform community adaptation actions. In addition, the data can help address climate data gaps within Canada and improve climate models and weather predictions.

    The following organizations and individuals are eligible to receive funding through the program:

    • Indigenous communities and organizations (Métis Governing Member, Métis community, Inuit community, self-governing community, Land Claim Organizations)
    • First Nation band or tribal councils
    • Indigenous Individuals

    Deadline: Friday, February 16, 2018.  Project funding of $150,000+ is available.

    The Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program is a new five-year, $75-million program designed to encourage Canadian municipalities to better prepare for and adapt to the new realities of climate change as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The program is delivered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and funded by the Government of Canada.

    Funding, funding, funding… Journalism, Agriculture Safety, Children’s Art, Indigenous projects 

    It's a bountiful world :)Hey Funds Fans, long time, no see!  Other matters have kept me occupied lately but here I am with a backlog of funding opportunities.  Since Thanksgiving weekend is coming up in Canada, I wish you all a wonderful time of family, friends, and food.   We all have so much to be thankful for.  Amen!

    The Earth Journalism Network is launching its third round of small grants to invest in strategic opportunities for media development around the world. As in previous years, these grants aim first and foremost to build the capacities of local environmental journalism networks, and thus in turn respond to the needs of the grant recipients’ local communities and environments.  Generally speaking, the Earth Journalism Grants Fund will be focused on capacity building, but if special opportunities arise, they are open to supporting fellowships and travel grants that support specific story ideas or coverage of key events, so long as these projects involve collaboration between multiple journalists. While content production is an important aspect of any project, applications without some form of network- or capacity-building component will not be considered. As Internews is strictly a media development organization, please avoid any applications rooted in advocacy or political campaigning.  Up to US$10,000 available.  Deadline: October 15th, 2013.

    The FCC AgSafety Fund helps charitable and non-profit groups deliver agriculture safety training to farmers and/or their workers across Canada either through direct training or a train the trainer model.  The grant is administered through a partnership between Farm Credit Canada (FCC) and the Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) to provide training to keep farmers, their families, agribusiness operations and employees safe at work.  Individuals and/or groups proposing programs or projects with a local or provincial scope are eligible to receive a maximum of $10,000. Applicants proposing programs with a national scope are eligible to receive a maximum of $25,000Deadline: October 27th, 2013.

It also highlights some global challenges relating to food – such as hunger, malnutrition, the food system, and climate change. The competition empowers children and young people with knowledge to make more informed food choices and to be active agents of change in our society. This competition encourages children and young people to create artwork and drawings that express why nutritious foods are important for a healthy world.  Prizes of US$500 will be awarded to the winner of each age group (6-10, 11-15 and 16-20 years old), US$200 will be awarded to the runner up of each age group and US$100 will be awarded to the third best drawing of each age group. In addition, Certificates of Recognition, signed by a United Nations official and a special gift to the schools of the winning artworks will be given.  Last but not least, the artworks will be used in logos, posters, FAO publications (distributed worldwide), T shirts and activity badges! This international drawing competition is open to ALL children and young people from 6 to 20 years old.  Deadline: October 31st, 2013.

    The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues invites Indigenous organizations or organizations working for indigenous peoples can apply for small grants from the Trust Fund.  The Fund is mainly used for small grants projects with a budget for up to US$ 10,000 covering one year’s expenses.  Priority will be given to projects that focus on the areas of (i) culture (with a specific focus on indigenous languages); and (ii) the environment (with a specific focus on the respect of the principle of free, prior and informed consent).  Deadline: November 1st, 2013.
