The City of Kingston is looking to help fund green energy projects and those interested are encouraged to take part in a free virtual event on May 26, 2021 to learn more about the Kingston Community Climate Action Fund (KCCAF).

The events will be hosted by the manager of the City’s Climate Leadership Division, Julie Salter-Keane. Topics covered during the event will include an overview of the fund, how to apply as well as what types of projects will be eligible for funding.

Previous participants will also be part of the virtual event to share their experiences from past years as well as to answer any questions attendees may have about the program.

There are two sessions available on May 26, 2021, the first being held from 3 to 4 p.m. with the second taking place from 5 to 6 p.m.

“Introduced in 2020 in partnership with the Kingston Community Credit Union, the KCCAF supports local projects to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” a city of Kingston news release stated on Wednesday, Apr. 5, 2021.

More than $40,000 was raised during the 2020 and 2021 fundraising years which led to, among other things, the purchase of an electric vehicle for Martha’s Table.

“Climate change is one of the few things that hasn’t stopped during the pandemic. Thanks to the KCCAF and community partners, Martha’s Table will help reduce emissions using an e-vehicle to deliver meals to people that can’t leave home,” Executive Director of Martha’s Table, Rhonda Candy, said.

“We hope you will accept our invitation and attend the information session. Together, we will green your good work and build a more sustainable and resilient Kingston,” said Julie Salter-Keane, Manager of the City’s Climate Leadership Division.
