Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Canada nonprofit organizations and community groups for projects that will positively impact the environment. Funding is is intended to support new projects that engage the public and clearly demonstrate measurable, positive results related to the key environmental priority: freshwater. Preference will be given to proposals that engage Indigenous Peoples, youth, or small businesses.

Projects must include one related priority result:

  • Canadians contribute to the improvement of water quality through the diversion and reduction of harmful substances in freshwater; or
  • Canadians contribute to improvement of freshwater management and increase climate resilience through action involving the development and/or restoration of natural infrastructure.

All projects must include at least one environmental indicator and at least one capacity building indicator. Projects must always address the environmental priority of the call for proposals and clearly demonstrate that activities are measurable; provide opportunities for community members to take action; and produce a positive environmental impact.

The following project costs are eligible under EcoAction:

  • Human resources, including salaries and benefits
  • Contract and professional services (e.g., accounting, audit, liability insurance costs that are directly attributed to carrying out the project, monitoring, legal or other professional fees)
  • Travel and field expenses (based on Government of Canada rates)
  • Materials and supplies
  • Printing and production costs
  • Communication and distribution costs
  • Equipment purchases or rental fees
  • Vehicle rental and operation costs
  • Translation fees
  • A reasonable share of overhead and/or administrative costs and rent that is directly attributed to program delivery
