The B.C. government is providing another $291,030 through the  First Nations Clean Energy Business Fund (FNCEBF) to help 11 First  Nations’ communities to pursue clean-power projects.

The FNCEBF provides money to build capacity in First Nations communities and to invest in clean-energy infrastructure. The fund helps to generate  jobs for families and provides opportunities that benefit First Nations  and non-First Nations’ communities alike. It also helps to foster economic independence for First Nations.

Applications to the fund are reviewed and decisions made based on the  strength of each application and its viability relative to other  applications.

Locally, the Lower Similkameen Indian Band will benefit from a funding grant of  $8,750.

The money will enable training for up to five Lower Similkameen  Indian Band members with training required to perform annual maintenance  and troubleshooting on the small wind turbine at the Lower Similkameen  Indian Band elementary school in Cawston.
