Project Description

Throwe Environmental serves as Field Liaisons for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF), which covers the entire coastal US (incl. Great Lakes) and five major US Territories. 

NCRF awards approx. $140 million annually to enhance communities’ natural defenses against severe weather and flooding. To date, NCRF has awarded more than $277 million in funding to properties, critical facilities, and infrastructure in coastal watersheds and habitats nationwide.

As Field Liaisons, we provide assistance to communities wanting to invest in climate resilience within the NCRF framework. Throwe provides capacity to Tribes, states, communities, and organizations that need direct assistance with project proposals.

We with the Native American Fish and Wildlife Society (NAFWS) and the American Society of Adaptation Professionals (ASAP) to provide Field Liaison services nationally. NAFWS brings unparalleled experience advancing the natural resource goals of indigenous communities. ASAP operates an expansive network of adaptation leaders, with a deep library of training tools and resources to draw on.
