The City of Calgary is introducing a Circular Economy Grant program for non-profit organizations to support innovative work in local waste reduction, reuse, recycling, and composting to help Calgary
move towards a circular economy*. Through this program, non-profit organizations can apply for $5,000-$25,000 grants for projects. This pilot program will start in 2023 and run through 2026.
The Circular Economy Grants will provide funding for projects to support community-based actions that contribute to the circular economy in Calgary.
Proposed projects should meet one or more of the following objectives:
*A circular economy eliminates waste and pollution, and conserves resources. It is a shift from a throw-away to a circular mindset to extend the lifecycle of goods, food, and resources through better design and continuous reuse, so nothing goes to waste.
