The Community Emergency Preparedness Fund has received additional funding and has added a new stream for Extreme Temperature Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning. The application deadline for this new stream is June 2, 2023.
The intent of the Extreme Temperature Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning funding stream is to support eligible applicants to ensure they have accurate knowledge of the risks associated with extreme temperatures and how these risks will change over time, and to develop effective response plans and strategies to prepare, mitigate and adapt to those risks.
Eligible applicants include all First Nations (bands and Treaty First Nations) and local governments (municipalities and regional districts) in BC.
The Community Emergency Preparedness Fund is a suite of funding programs intended to enhance the resilience of local governments, First Nations and communities to better prepare for emergencies and the changing climate.
More information on future CEPF intakes will be available soon.
