Resources Update: New Age-Friendly Funding

Every month we provide an update on upcoming deadlines for UBCM funding programs, and other funding sources and resources of interest to local governments, First Nations and community organizations.

Local Government Program Services

The final application deadline for the 2014 Strategic Wildfire Prevention Initiative is this Friday, October 3. Applications are being accepted only for new and updated Community Wildfire Protection Plans for priority communities. Applications for Fuel management prescriptions and operational treatments will not be accepted until further notice.

A further round of Age-friendly funding was announced at last week’s Convention, to be delivered by UBCM’s Seniors Housing & Support Initiative.  Municipalities and regional districts are eligible to apply for up to $20,000 for their age-friendly plan or project. The priority in 2015 is to engage communities that have not participated in the program.

Also announced at Convention was a new Asset Management Planning Grant program, supported by a $1.5 million provincial contribution. Program details will be announced soon.
