Mark your calendars! 2020 Grant Timelines
Happy New Year everyone! 2020 is upon us and we are ready to bring in a new decade of bold leadership and ambitious action on environmental challenges. We are excited to offer numerous funding opportunities to nonprofit organizations undertaking environmental projects in Alberta this year.
Alberta Ecotrust presently offers four grant streams: Alberta Ecotrust Environmental Grant Program – Community Grants and Major Projects, Cities-IPCC Legacy Research Grant Program, and EcoCity Edmonton Grant Program. Please review the following deadlines for each of our grant streams in 2020 and mark your calendars. For Major Projects and Community Grants, all of the application information, including eligibility, guidelines, and the online application portal is available on our Environmental Grant Program page. For EcoCity Edmonton and the Cities-IPCC Legacy Research Program grants, please visit the EcoCity Edmonton Grant Program website or the Cities-IPCC Legacy Research Grant Program website for program information, eligibility, and the application portal.
We also anticipate funding being available later in 2020 for projects that reduce GHG emissions in Calgary and Edmonton as part of the Low Carbon Cities Canada initiative. Please join our mailing list to stay informed of new program opportunities.
If you have any questions regarding our grant programs please don’t hesitate to contact us.
