Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund
In 2018, the Government of Canada launched the Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF), committing $2 billion over 10 years to invest in structural and natural infrastructure projects to increase the resilience of communities that are impacted by natural disasters triggered by climate change.
In the 2021 federal budget, an additional $1.375 billion in funding over 12 years was announced to renew the DMAF. Of this amount, a minimum of $138 million is allocated to Indigenous Recipients. The DMAF funding now has two streams: $670 million allocated to the small-scale project stream (projects with total eligible costs between $1 million and $20 million) and the remaining funding allocated to the large-scale project stream (projects with total eligible costs of $20 million and above).
