Communities throughout British Columbia will share $6.4 million in grants from the BC governments Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program.
The program is a conditional grant program that provides funding to local BC governments who signed the Climate Action Charter and commit to report publicly on their progress toward meeting their climate action goals.
MLA for the Cariboo Chilcotin Donna Barnett gives us the Dollar amounts that were handed out in the Cariboo.
“100 Mile received $5,521, Williams Lake received $27,597, and Quesnel which is not in my riding but received $48,454.”
Barnett says 96% of local governments signed the charter which commits them to be carbon neutral in their corporate operations, measure their community-wide greenhouse gas emissions, and to create complete, compact and energy efficient communities.
