Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP)

 

Climate action is a key provincial priority and local governments are key partners in helping to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and create complete, compact and energy-efficient communities.

 

The Climate Action Revenue Incentive Program (CARIP) is a conditional grant program that provides funding to BC Climate Action Charter (Charter) signatories equivalent to one hundred percent of the carbon taxes they pay directly.  This funding supports local governments in their efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and move forward on achieving their Charter goals.


Eligibilty Requirements

To be eligible for the conditional grant, local governments must:

  • Be signed on to the Charter, and by doing so commit to take actions and develop strategies to achieve the following three goals:
    • being carbon neutral in their corporate operations;
    • measure and report on their community GHG emissions profile; and,
    • create complete, compact, more energy-efficient rural and urban communities.
  • Fulfill the CARIP reporting requirements by June 1, 2018, as noted below.

Amount of Grant
Under the CARIP, each eligible local government will receive a grant equal to one hundred percent of the carbon tax paid as a direct expenditure.
