Grants of up to $15,000 to British Columbia regional districts and municipalities for capacity building projects. Funding is intended to increase the sustainability of services by improving asset management practices. New projects and new project components are eligible for funding. The focus of the program is capacity building, supporting initial and improved assessment, and planning activities.

Asset management is defined as an integrated process bringing together planning, finance, engineering and operations to effectively manage existing and new infrastructure to maximize benefits, reduce risks and provide satisfactory levels of service to community users in a socially, environmentally and economically sustainable manner.

Asset management brings together the skills, expertise and activities of people with information about a community’s physical assets and financial resources so that informed decisions can be made to ensure the sustainable service delivery for citizens today and in the future.

Each local government is different in its scale and chosen approach to asset management. Each local government will define their own activities based on their unique context, starting point and priorities. The program seeks to support local governments to take next steps on the path to better asset management practices. A further objective of the program is to support local governments in meeting their asset management commitments under the Gas Tax Fund.
