Supporting municipalities conducting Phase II Environmental Site Assessments for closed or closing landfills.
The Landfill Environmental Site Assessment (LESA) Program provides funding to support municipalities conducting Phase II Environmental Site Assessments for closed or closing landfills. LESA is a partnership between SUMA and the Ministry of Environment, with SUMA managing and operating the grant program.
The program will provide funding for up to 10 environmental site assessments, with each grant covering up to $22,500 of the cost of completing an assessment. Municipalities will be responsible for covering any remaining cost.
To be eligible for funding, applicants must be an urban, rural, or northern municipality in Saskatchewan that has applied to the Ministry's Environmental Protection Branch to close their landfill.
Applications will be accepted later this summer, with more information on how to apply to come.
