The Ontario government is investing $100 million from its carbon market into a new fund, called the Municipal GHG Challenge Fund, that will fund local initiatives to fight climate change.

The money, which is the first installment of a three-year plan, will be available for municipalities to fund programs designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in their communities. Municipalities must apply with an inventory of greenhouse gas emissions in their community, a strategy, and identifiable reduction targets, and are eligible to receive up to $10 million in 2018.
