The Throwe Environmental team will present alongside the Syracuse University Environmental Finance Center in an upcoming webinar hosted by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (NY DEC). Presenters will apply tips, lessons learned, and “funding basics” to various federal funding opportunities, with a particular focus on NFWF’s National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF). The webinar will be geared at upstate New York communities in the Great Lake watersheds that are looking to enhance their climate resilience.
Funding Basics for Great Lakes Communities: Crafting Competitive Proposals for the National Coastal Resilience Fund and Beyond
Tuesday, December 7th, 1:00 PM – 2:00PM PM EST
Webinar Description: From identifying funding opportunities to clicking “submit,” navigating the grant process can be challenging. In this 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.
Presenters will apply key tips to various funding opportunities, including 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. Participants are invited to bring project-specific ideas and questions for a discussion following a presentation and general Q&A.
Who should attend: Municipal officials and staff, state and federal agencies, NGOs, land protection organizations, academic institutions
