Apply now for NOAA’s Coastal Resilience Grants to fund climate resilience projects in your jurisdiction!
What kinds of projects are eligible?
NOAA recently issued a call for proposals under the federal funding opportunity for the NOAA Coastal Resilience Grants Program. The program is an integration of two existing grants programs at NOAA: the Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Grants program administered by NOAA Fisheries and the Regional Coastal Resilience Grants program administered by NOAA’s National Ocean Service.
The integrated Coastal Resilience Grants program combine’s NOAA efforts to strengthen coastal communities, ecosystems and associated economies to the negative impacts of extreme weather and climate-related hazards. Funded projects will advance healthy and sustainable coastal ecosystems through habitat restoration, as well as support approaches to build resilience of coastal regions, communities, and the economy by developing plans and implementing actions to mitigate the negative impacts of extreme weather and climate-related hazards.
The estimated $15 million in funding for this program is based on the FY 2016 appropriated funding level. The FFO will consist of two categories of activities: 1) Strengthening Coastal Communities; and 2) Habitat Restoration.
If you’re a coastal community who’s identified habitat restoration or coastal mitigation projects as a priority, don’t pass up this opportunity for funding!
