Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about other federal funding programs.

Can we use our federal Gas Tax revenue as our municipal contribution for another project funded by the Government of Canada?
 
Maybe. While the federal Gas Tax Fund does not have a limit on the amount of federal funds that can go to a project, other funding programs often do. Please confirm these ‘stacking’ provisions and details with the program administrators.
 
If you are allowed to use more than one federal funding program, the project must meet the requirements of both the federal Gas Tax Fund and the other program.
 
Is the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM)’s Green Fund subject to stacking provisions within the federal Gas Tax Agreement?
 
No. This is not a federal government program and therefore not subject to the stacking provisions.
