Funding Opportunity for Community-based Projects

Jul 21 2011 Communities and Public | Comments Off on Funding Opportunity for Community-based Projects

For your information, the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) recently implemented its North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action (NAPECA) program. The objective of the NAPECA program is to empower and build the capacity of local peoples and organizations to improve their health and environmental quality.

The NAPECA program seeks to support efforts at the grassroots level. NAPECA has put up $1.4 million to provide/fund grants over the next two years to support communities in their efforts to locally address environmental problems across North America. This work at the community level is an integral part of delivering on the CEC trilateral priorities and objectives.

Eligible applicants for this funding include nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), environmental groups, community-based associations, academic institutions, Tribal nations, and indigenous peoples and communities. Grantees must be located in Canada, Mexico or the United States. NAPECA will not support businesses, private individuals, municipal, provincial/state, territorial and federal governments. However, proposals from qualified organizations partnering with the private sector or local government are eligible.
