Columbia Basin Trust Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs

Last updated on October 23, 2023


The Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Programs (CIP/AAP) are intended to be flexible and incorporate community-based funding decisions. The programs support local projects that provide additional value to Basin communities, and that benefit the broad community and public good.

Program funds are distributed annually to the Trust’s local government partners:

  • The regional districts of East Kootenay, Central Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary 
  • The City of Revelstoke 
  • Town of Golden 
  • Village of Valemount
  • Indigenous partners: Ɂaq’am, Ɂakisq’nuk, Lower Kootenay (Yaqan nuɁkiy), Tobacco Plains Indian Band (Ɂakink’umŧasnuqŧiɁit) and the Shuswap Indian Band.
