grant for climate action innovation
It’s going to take game-changing innovation to meet local 2030 emissions reduction targets. CEA is ready to change the game.
As a non-profit consultant, we are committed to transforming all proceeds from our work into advancing solutions for community climate action. And now is the time for us to support ambitious communities to implement game-changing climate action innovations. That's why we have developed the CEA Game-Changer Grant. This grant allows us to invest what we’ve saved over the last decade to fund cutting edge actions that utilities, Province, FCM, and others are not set up to fund.
This is the decade of climate action - a critical time to accelerate implementation of proven solutions while testing actions that push the boundaries of local government climate action to create deep emissions reductions.
To learn more about the Game-Changer Grant and how to submit an Expression of Interest, read the full details here. We encourage local governments and First Nations communities to respond. We understand that the timing associated with this offer won’t work for everyone. CEA is also exploring how we can provide longer-term relationship-based support in the future.

For more information, register for the upcoming Game-Changer Webinar on May 4, 2021 at 10:00 am Pacific / 11:00 am Mountain. During the webinar, there will be a Q&A session for details on the grant and EOI submission.
The Game-Changer Grant is just one "Decade of Climate Action" pathway. We are ready to support local governments every step of the way by offering three pathways of community climate action implementation support. This allows us to take current needs and local context into account, ensuring all communities can implement proven solutions for significant emissions reductions and ultimately meet 2030 targets. The 3 pathways are:
Which pathway is right for you?
Local governments can choose to participate in just one pathway, or maybe have capacity and motivation to apply to all three! Stay tuned for more details about Peer Networks and Big Moves Implementation, or sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date.
