Communities across British Columbia will be sharing more than  $65 million in funding with the latest instalments of the Strategic  Community Investment Fund (SCIF) and Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP), announced Ida Chong, Minister of Community, Sport and  Cultural Development last week.

The province is providing $30 million in Small Community and Regional  District grants and $30 million in net traffic fine revenues through the  Strategic Community Investment Fund.

 

Communities that have signed the Climate Action Charter and report  publicly on their progress toward meeting their climate action goals will  receive a grant equivalent to 100 per cent of the carbon tax they pay  directly, for a total of more than $5 million provincewide.
