A new grant will help Norfolk County better cope with an ever-changing climate.

Norfolk County has been granted up to $76,886 in funding from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities’ Climate Change Staff Grants initiative to help address staffing gaps and increase its capacity to adapt to the effects of climate change.

Norfolk County will use the funding to dedicate staff to activities such as the development of a climate adaptation plan and greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan.

Norfolk County is among 59 communities across Canada benefitting from this initiative.

The Climate change staff grants are offered through the Municipalities for Climate Innovation Program (MCIP) delivered by FCM and funded by the Government of Canada.
