CBT Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program

The CBT CIP/AAP 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.

Because of Valemount's proximity to the Kinbasket reservoir and location at the northern most point of the Columbia Basin we are eligible to offer this program.
