Call for Applications to the Town of The Blue Mountains Environmental Sustainability Fund

Press Releases

The Town of The Blue Mountains invites community organizations to apply for the Town’s Environmental Sustainability Fund. 

This fund has an allocation of $5,000 that will be split between the successful applications which demonstrate a clear goal of advancing environmental sustainability within the Town.

This year’s fund builds on previous successful recipients. The most recent recipient has been Georgian Bay Forever, which hired two summer students to promote waste diversion and has been leading community shoreline cleanups across the Town. Treetrust TBM received funding for community tree planting initiatives in 2021 and for a local tree nursery project in 2020, and Thornbury Community Gardens and Beaver River Watershed Initiative projects both received funding in 2019. These projects exemplify how the Town and community organizations can work alongside one another and foster social vibrancy and environmental sustainability.

Interested community organizations wishing to apply must submit their application no later than November 20, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. ET. To learn more about the Town’s Environmental Sustainability Fund and to apply, please visit the Town's webpage.
