The Province of British Columbia is accepting applications from local governments, Indigenous communities and not-for-profit organizations for nearly $136 million in infrastructure grants to help communities develop resilience in response to COVID-19.

In partnership with the Government of Canada, the funds are being made available as part of the new COVID-19 Resilience Infrastructure Stream (CVRIS), a new stream under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).

CVRIS will support projects that focus on retrofits, rehabilitation and upgrades to existing local government and Indigenous community buildings, COVID-19 response infrastructure, active transportation and disaster mitigation.

 Open Intake until January 27, 2021

Local governments, Indigenous communities and not-for profit organizations* are encouraged to submit applications through the ICIP on the B.C. government website, here: www.gov.bc.ca/Investing-in-Canada-Infrastructure-Program
