While this program was started in 2015 by the City of Edmonton, Alberta Ecotrust Foundation and the Edmonton Community Foundation began supporting in 2018 to help City of Edmonton invest over $1.2 million dollars through the EcoCity Edmonton grant program. This grant supported non-profits, community leagues, schools and charities to invest in citizen-led urban solutions to climate change.

While this grant is no longer available, this same partnership now offers the Climate Innovation Fund (CIF) grant program. This program targets the major urban greenhouse gas emissions sources in Edmonton, and aims to support a broad range of climate positive interventions while ensuring an equitable and just future for all Albertans.

Projects supported through the program may cover a diverse range of activities, from technology demonstration to collective impact and policy advancement.
