$6.4 million helps B.C. communities build a greener future

Clearwater is receiving $5,487 from the B.C. government's Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP)

Clearwater is receiving $5,487,  Barriere is getting $1,696, and Thompson-Nicola Regiona District $14,928 from the B.C. government’s Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP).

Overall, communities throughout British Columbia will share over $6.4 million in  grants from the program, Community, Sport and Cultural Development Minister Peter Fassbender announced recently.

“The Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program continues to reward local governments for supporting British Columbia’s Climate Action Charter and helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” Fassbender said.

CARIP is a conditional grant program that provides funding to B.C. local governments which signed the Climate Action Charter and commit to report publicly on their progress toward meeting their climate action goals. Local governments receive a CARIP grant equivalent to the full amount of direct carbon tax they pay in a year.

Since 2008, CARIP has granted over $39 million to B.C. local governments to help support communities in their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and work toward Climate Action Charter goals.
