Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs

The Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs (CIP/AAP), the Trust's longest running programs, support projects identified as priorities within individual communities.

The CIP/AAP are funding programs designed to help address the needs of Basin communities. The programs are flexible and able to accommodate individual processes and they incorporate community-based funding decisions to better meet local priorities.

As of April 2016, the programs will be increasing community support by 15 per cent, from $3.6 million to over $4.2 million annually for the next five years.

The Trust allocates funds to local government and First Nation partners who in turn decide how they allocate the funds to communities in their regions. Applications for funding through these programs are made directly to the local government delivery partner in your area.

All areas receive Community Initiatives funding, while the communities and areas around the Arrow, Kinbasket, Duncan and Koocanusa reservoirs which were most affected by the construction of the Treaty dams, also receive Affected Areas funding.
