Background: In June 2022 Caledon Council approved to merge the Community and School Green Funds grant program to streamline the process and allow more funds to be dispersed per project. EcoCaledon was one of the successful community groups to apply for and receive funding from the Caledon’s Climate Action Fund. The Caledon Cares Enviro Challenge is funded from their grant.
