FCM's Climate and Asset Management Network helps Canadian municipalities better integrate climate change and sustainability goals into decision-making about infrastructure assets and services, such as roads, drinking water and sanitation. We provide a combination of peer learning opportunities, grant funding of up to $175,000 and training.

The Climate and Asset Management Network provides a combination of peer learning opportunities, funding and training activities that occur in two phases. 
 
In Phase 1, participants develop or refresh an asset management policy, strategy and governance framework to align with their climate action and other social, economic and environmental sustainability goals.
 
In Phase 2, municipalities may undertake a project to strengthen certain elements of asset management analysis and decision-making, while integrating climate risks and other sustainability considerations. This phase is optional.
 
Funding available
 
Grant funding of up to $175,000 (combined funding for phases 1 and 2)
 
Who can apply
 
The Climate and Asset Management Network is open to municipal governments of all sizes across Canada. 
 
This initiative is designed for municipalities that have a strong commitment to climate action and want to integrate climate change goals into their asset management planning.
 
Application deadline: June 15, 2017
