National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF)

Throwe Environmental serves as the Field Liaison for the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF), which covers the entire coastal United States (including the Great Lakes), as well as five major US Territories. NCRF awards approx. $30-$35 million annually in grant funding to enhance coastal communities’ natural defenses against severe weather and flooding. The primary purpose of the fund is to restore, increase, and strengthen natural infrastructure to protect coastal communities while also enhancing habitats for fish and wildlife. To date, the NCRF has provided approx. $90 million in funding to 100,400 properties and 2,500 critical facilities and infrastructure in 17,800-acres of coastal watersheds and habitats.

As Field Liaison for NCRF, Throwe Environmental provides assistance to those communities wanting to invest in climate resilience within the framework of NCRF’s four priority areas: (1) community capacity building and planning, (2) project site assessment and preliminary design, (3) final design and permitting, and (4) project restoration and monitoring. Specifically, Throwe Environmental provides capacity to towns, cities, counties, and tribes that need direct assistance on a funded project or a project proposal. Through guidance on priority projects and troubleshooting around potential problems, Throwe Environmental is working to promote climate resilience across US coastal communities through the NCRF.
