Low Carbon Communities
The Low Carbon Communities (LCC) Program supports community-led, innovative solutions to create long-lasting greenhouse gas reductions. The program provides funding for projects that support low-carbon solutions in buildings, electricity, transportation and education.
Projects can include testing new ideas, applying best practices, increasing knowledge or enhancing equity and accessibility. You can submit an expression of interest until 22 June 2023.
Projects should support low-carbon solutions in one of the following categories:
- clean buildings

- clean transportation
The Low Carbon Communities Program provides up to 75% of total project eligible costs. Projects can only receive up to the maximum funding amount for their project funding category.
Accessing the funding
The Low Carbon Communities Program provides 90% of the funding at the start of the project. Recipients receive the remaining funding when they complete the project and submit final reports.
