Help make Charlottetown a more sustainable place to live, work and enjoy

The Community Sustainability Micro-Grant Program call for applications is now open. Eligible projects can receive up to $2,500 in funding to help bring their project to life.

Micro-grants are available to individuals or community organizations who are planning an event or project that works towards the goals and actions of the City’s Integrated Community Sustainability Plan. Projects must take place in Charlottetown and be completed in 2022.

Eligible applications will be reviewed by a selection committee based on:
• creativity;
• project feasibility; and,
• positive impact and contribution to community sustainability goals.

The application deadline is 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27, 2022. To apply, visit

As a guideline, the City’s ICSP, and related sustainability efforts, are based on four pillars: environmental, economic, cultural and social. Eligible events and projects must align one of the four pillars and any of the following ten key themes: water, energy, transportation, food, healthy economy, infrastructure and the built environment, people and places, arts, culture and heritage, active healthy living and nature.

Since the program began in 2011, more than $150,000 in funding has supported more than 80 local community sustainability projects and events, ranging from a living roof bike shelter to a dance showcase to urban beehives.
