Infrastructure Canada accepting new applications to DMAF
By Infrastructure Canada
Infrastructure Canada is accepting applications for new projects through the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF).
This funding will support projects that include new construction of public infrastructure or the modification or reinforcement of existing public infrastructure that help communities withstand natural disasters and climate-related risks.
Municipalities, local governments, provinces or territories, public sector bodies, Indigenous organizations, not-for-profit, and for-profit organizations in partnership with other eligible applicants outside the private sector, can apply for funding. Projects must have a minimum of $1 million in total eligible costs to be considered eligible.
As part of the Government of Canada Adaptation Action Plan, released alongside the National Adaptation Strategy (NAS), the DMAF received an additional $489.1 million in funding. This additional funding, combined with the remaining program funding, makes more than $1 billion available for projects.
“Canadians in every corner of the country are experiencing the impacts of climate change – but through it all, they have shown resilience, innovation and resourcefulness. Working with communities big and small, we are investing to help protect communities, businesses, and families from future natural disasters,”Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Intergovernmental Affairs, Infrastructure and Communities, said.
