Nova Scotia announces green funding availability

Posted on November 11, 2008

Conserve Nova Scotia will invest $200,000 in the Green Mobility Capital Grants program this year. The Green Mobility program is administered by the Ecology Action Centre, a non-profit organization that works to build a more sustainable and healthier province.

Through the program, towns, municipalities and community groups can access grants of up to $25,000 for environmentally friendly, community-based transportation projects that encourage energy efficiency on the road.

Grants will be awarded to support sustainable transportation infrastructure projects, including the purchase of an accessible van, feeder bus or car-share program vehicle; construction of a trail connecting a neighborhood to a transit terminal; purchase of bike racks for transit vehicles; installation of bike racks; creation of a pedestrian zone, bike lane or car-free area; and installation of share the road signs.

To qualify for a grant, matching funding of at least 50 percent of the total project value is required and projects must be completed by September 2009.
