Clean Coast, Clean Waters Initiative

The Province is helping protect and restore B.C.’s marine environment with an additional $25M one-time additional investment to the Clean Coast, Clean Waters Initiative Fund. The funding will be distributed in two rounds, one this spring and another planned for early 2024. The first application period has ended. The Fund is directed toward marine coastal First Nations, Indigenous organizations and local governments in BC, as well as BC non-profits and organizations / individuals that have expertise in shoreline and marine debris clean-up and/or removal of derelict vessels. The Fund will support two types of projects: Marine shoreline clean-up: Conduct and coordinate shoreline clean up in marine coastal BC locations. Derelict vessel removal: Conduct and coordinate derelict vessel removal in coastal BC locations.
