The Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF) is a national, competitive, and merit-based contribution program intended to support infrastructure projects designed to mitigate current and future climate-related risks and disasters triggered by natural hazards, such as floods, wildland fires, droughts and seismic events.
Eligible projects include new construction of public infrastructure and/or modification or reinforcement of existing public infrastructure, including natural infrastructure, that prevent, mitigate or protect against the impacts of climate change, disasters triggered by natural hazards, and extreme weather.
Information on the DMAF, including the applicant’s guide, eligibility criteria, and how to apply, is available on the website.
Applications must be submitted to Infrastructure Canada through the application portal accessible via the DMAF website. Applications will be accepted at any time before the portal closes on July 19, 2023, at 3:00 p.m. (EDT) .
