Funding Basics for New England Communities: A Beginner’s Guide to Developing Successful Proposals for Resiliency
Wednesday, September 22th, 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM EST
In this 90-minute webinar, you will learn how to craft more competitive grant applications and increase the success rate of your submissions. You will learn about the steps you may need to take before you even start writing, including how to identify priority projects, determine suitable funding sources, and avoid common pitfalls.
Participants will also have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to a unique funding opportunity: the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF). NCRF invests in projects that will create, expand, and restore natural systems in areas that will (1) increase protection for communities from coastal storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion and (2) improve valuable habitats for fish and wildlife species. NCRF’s team of Field Liaisons, Throwe Environmental, will be available to help you understand how communities can take advantage of the NCRF, as well as other funding sources.
