APPLY NOW: $1.3 million grant program for environmental community projects

Boston, MA, 15 July 2015 — Across North America, countless active community groups are tackling environmental challenges close to home. The Council of the Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) is calling on local hands-on organizations to apply for a new C$1,325,000 grant program endorsed by the CEC Council at its 22nd annual session on July 15, 2015.

The North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action (NAPECA) grant program is designed to support non-profit nongovernmental organizations in Canada, Mexico and the United States that work with local communities to create a shared sense of responsibility for stewardship of the environment. For 2015–2016, the CEC Council has agreed that the focus of the NAPECA proposals is Sustainable Communities/Urban Initiatives.

Useful Tips

  • Fill in the proposal application form in the language of your preference: English, French or Spanish.

  • If, for some reason, you cannot apply using the online system or if you are encountering difficulties with it, please contact us and our staff will be happy to assist you in completing the application process.


Recognizing that ecosystems do not follow political boundaries but rather often cross state, provincial and national borders, and that individual investments made by each country can achieve greater success if a shared sense of responsibility and stewardship for the environment across North America is developed, the Parties, through the CEC, established a grant program, the North American Partnership for Environmental Community Action (NAPECA) in 2010.

NAPECA is intended to support a flexible and diverse set of project types that will improve access to resources provided by the Parties through the CEC for smaller, more hands-on organizations and that build partnerships at the community level with a focus on sustainable communities and urban initiatives.
