NEW for 2017: Small Grant Award for Climate Adaptation

The Climate and Resilience CoP would like to recognize and support the commitment of Gulf Coast communities to climate adaptation. To that end, the CoP is offering a small grant award in 2017! Gulf Coast communities are encouraged to apply for funds to support a project that addresses a climate adaptation need or challenge in the community and can serve as a demonstration project for other coastal communities in the region. Details about the application process can be found here. A letter of intent is due January 25, 2017. One project will be awarded. Many thanks to NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management for providing the funding for this award.
