Climate Adaptation Partner Grants

FCM's Climate Adaptation Partner Grants provide funding to not-for-profit organizations to deliver training and support that will help municipalities adapt to the impacts of climate change. The program will offer grants of up to $250,000, enabling expert organizations to lead projects that help communities address their vulnerabilities to environmental challenges, such as flooding and extreme temperatures. 

Initiative requirements

Your initiative should be designed to address the impacts of climate change in a particular region or on a national level and enable each participant municipality to reach a tangible outcome. Initiatives should accomplish the following:

  • Lead peer-learning activities, such as workshops, webinars or teleconferences, with at least five participating municipalities.
  • Develop plans, studies or projects in each municipality contributing to climate change resilience, either in a given region or on a national level.
  • Connect municipalities undertaking similar initiatives to share approaches and best practices they can apply in their communities.
