Coastal Resilience Proposals Due April 8

Mar 11, 2020 | He‘eia, Hawai'i, Prepared Communities, Reserves, What We Work For

He’eia Reserve was a previous grant receipient through the National Coastal Resilience Fund, which supported them in a major marsh restoration project.

Calling all NERRds: The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation is seeking proposals to its National Coastal Resilience Fund. Pre-proposals are due by Wednesday, April 8

This year the fund will award $31 million to support projects that restore, increase, and strengthen natural infrastructure that protects coastal communities and enhances fish and wildlife habitat. This year the RFP includes a new Community Capacity Building and Planning category to support development of prioritized coastal resilience plans and projects through an inclusive process. 

(Talk about a good fit for Reserves!)

You can browse the 2019 grantees, who are working on restoration and expansion of coastal marshes and wetlands, dune and beach systems, oyster and coral reefs, mangroves, coastal forests, coastal rivers, and barrier islands. 

We know it’s high RFP season and everyone is working hard—maybe there’s an unfunded idea from a past RFP or another funding program that could be the springboard to success?
