“National Coastal Resilience Fund Opportunities For Michigan Municipalities”
As communities across Michigan experience intensifying climate-driven and water-related coastal hazards, it is essential that long-term investments are made to build capacity and enhance local resilience. The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) annual National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) grant program provides opportunities for Michigan communities and organizations to invest in sustainable, nature-based resilience solutions. Over the next 4 years, the NCRF anticipates making over $140 million in funding available annually to support planning, design, and implementation efforts that enhance community resilience and provide benefits to fish and wildlife habitat.
In this session, the NCRF Field Liaison team led by Throwe Environmental will introduce potential applicants to the NCRF program, inform them about the type of technical assistance that is available, and share examples of nature-based solutions in the Great Lakes region. There will also be time at the end of the presentation to discuss project-specific ideas with the Field Liaison team in breakout rooms, so please download the NCRF Project Brainstorming Worksheet ahead of time!
