NOAA announces Grants Program #hurricane


The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued a call for proposals under the first federal funding opportunity for the new Regional Coastal Resilience Grants Program. The coastal resilience grants program will support regional approaches to activities that build resilience of coastal regions, communities, and economic sectors to the negative impacts from extreme weather events, climate hazards, and changing ocean conditions. 
The full federal funding opportunity is available at Grants.gov. Each proposal may request between $500,000 to $1 million in federal funds, and requires a 2:1 federal to non-federal funding cost share in either cash or in-kind matches. Applications are due by July 24, 2015.
Eligible funding applicants include nonprofit organizations, institutions of higher education, regional organizations, private (for profit) entities and state, local, and tribal governments.   
More information about the program can be found at:http://www.coast.noaa.gov/resilience-grant/
Also, the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service is administering a companion $4 million Coastal Ecosystem Resilience Grant Program to advance healthy and sustainable coastal ecosystems through habitat restoration. Details about this program are available at:www.habitat.noaa.gov/funding/coastalresiliency.html
An informational webinar for both the Regional Coastal Resilience Grants Program and the Coastal Ecosystem Resilience Grant Program will be held on June 2, 2015, from 3:00-4:00 PM ET
For questions about NOAA’s Regional Coastal Resilience Grants Program, please contact Adam Stein at Adam.Stein@noaa.gov.
