FCM's Green Municipal Fund™ (GMF) is a unique program that supports municipal initiatives across Canada that benefit the environment, local economies and quality of life.
GMF grants and below-market loans directly support municipal initiatives, while GMF education and training resources help municipal governments share expertise and strengthen their ability to set and surpass their sustainable goals.
The Government of Canada endowed the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) with $550 million to establish GMF.
Grants and below-market loans
Funding is allocated in five sectors of municipal activity: brownfields, energy, transportation, waste and water.
- Grants to develop sustainable community plans
- Grants to conduct feasibility studies and field tests
- Loans, usually in combination with grants, to implement capital projects
