Poverty Reduction Planning & Action Program

Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM)

Applications are currently being accepted for this program.
In March 2019, the Province of BC released their poverty reduction strategy: TogetherBC: British Columbia’s Poverty Reduction Strategy. Mandated through the Poverty Reduction Strategy Act, the strategy set targets to reduce the overall poverty rate in British Columbia by at least 25%, and the child poverty rate by at least 50%, by 2024. TogetherBC is based on four principles: affordability, opportunity, reconciliation, and social inclusion. These principles guided the priority action areas that form the core of the strategy. 

The intent of the Poverty Reduction Planning & Action program is to support local governments in reducing poverty at the local level and to support the Province’s poverty reduction strategy.
