Today, the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) announced 10 community projects chosen under the 2022 North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action (NAPECA) grant program. This NAPECA cycle is supporting community-based recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, with C$1.5 million in grant funding to support environmental initiatives that help North American communities implement solutions and strengthen their capacities to recover and increase their resilience.
“The 10 winning projects aim to encourage an equitable recovery by helping communities, particularly the most vulnerable and underserved populations, to address challenges exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Richard Morgan, CEC Executive Director.
The NAPECA selection committee chose 10 final projects from more than 200 proposals. The selected projects meet the CEC Council’s strategic objectives for this program to support model environmental initiatives that will help build long-term partnerships and promote a shared responsibility and stewardship for the environment.
Work on the selected projects will begin in May 2022 and conclude by April 2024.
