CBT Grants

Our funding - from small to large - promotes the health of individuals, communities and ecosystems throughout the Clayoquot Sound Biosphere Region. Each granting stream is supported by its own Advisory Committee comprised of local volunteers with interest and expertise relevant to the specific grant. Advisory Committees review proposals and make funding recommendations to the CBT Board of Directors.

Research & Environment
The CBT Research & Environment Committee has an annual discretionary budget to fund small projects throughout the region. Projects will be funded up to a maximum of $6,000.
