Province Invests $65 Million in BC Communities
By Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development

VICTORIA – 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.

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.
