CCBF - Municipal Strategic Component
The Municipal Strategic Component (MSC) of the Canada Community-Building Fund (CCBF) is targeted at making a transformative difference in the sustainability and future prosperity of local government and unincorporated areas across PEI. Funding is available to Island municipalities and eligible non-profit, for-profit and NGO organizations undertaking projects of significant benefit to a community.
Project submissions are reviewed twice yearly with funding approved in priority categories as follows:
First consideration will be given to projects related to:
- Drinking Water
- Wastewater, including storm sewer separation to address CWSMMWE
- Capacity Building, investing in growth management and land use planning
- MSC will fund up to 90% of eligible costs for a municipality to develop its Official Plan and Land-use bylaws. Additional funding for municipal growth management may be available through Municipal Affairs Division (separate application required). For more information, review the Municipal Affairs application process and funding guidelines at Municipal Growth Management Studies.
