Grants to USA and territories nonprofits, government agencies, tribal governments, and educational institutions in eligible regions for projects to increase disaster resilience in coastal communities impacted by the 2018 wildfires, Typhoon Yutu, and hurricanes Michael and Florence. Eligible regions include Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Northern Mariana Islands.
The Emergency Coastal Resilience Fund will support projects that strengthen natural systems at a scale that will increase protection for communities and critical assets against the future impacts of storms, floods, and other natural hazards. These investments will enable communities to better withstand and recover more quickly from events, while also enhancing important habitats for fish and wildlife populations.
NFWF will award approximately $48 million in grants to create, expand, and restore natural systems and nature-based infrastructure to: (1) reduce the impacts of coastal storm surge, sea-level rise, wave velocity, flooding, debris flow, stormwater run-off, and other natural hazards on coastal communities; and (2) strengthen the ecological integrity and functionality of coastal ecosystems to protect communities and to enhance fish and wildlife and their associated habitats.
The Emergency Coastal Resilience Fund will focus on increasing resilience of coastal communities within the above described geographies. This program will prioritize natural resource restoration projects that provide dual benefits – both benefit for human community resilience and benefits for fish and wildlife. The program will capitalize on existing state, regional, and local plans, disaster mitigation plans, and landscape-level information to inform where projects and activities will address regional circumstances, needs, and priorities to best protect communities and ecosystems from future disasters.
All proposals must clearly describe how projects will support achieving the overall goals of the Emergency Coastal Resilience Fund, including both:
