We believe that protecting and improving the environment within Edmonton's borders is everyone's responsibility. Through EcoCity Edmonton, you can learn about Edmonton's environmental vision, find inspiration to take action in your community and get a grant to help you get your idea off the ground.

This program was piloted in 2014 as the Neighbourhood Action Program.

Program Details

We are partnering with Alberta Ecotrust to deliver environmental grants to help support energy literate citizens with energy conserving lifestyles and a strong shift to active and public transportation.

We believe these grants, available to non-profits, community leagues, schools and charities, will engage Edmontonians to work on these challenges and provide them with support to collaborate and to create positive environmental change in their own backyards.

Eligible organizations include:  registered nonprofits, registered charities, community leagues, area First Nations and schools.

The focus will be on community projects that help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Examples of neighbourhood projects include:

  • Walking school bus
  • Installation of solar panels on a community facility
  • Tool-lending library

Grant Application

The grant application is now open.
Deadline: March 31, 2018
