Grants to USA government agencies, tribal and local governments, nonprofit and for-profit organizations, and educational institutions to assist coastal regions in preparing for natural disasters. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal. This program will make investments in planning, design, and restoration of natural and nature-based solutions to help protect coastal communities from the impacts of storms, floods, and other natural hazards and enable them to recover more quickly and enhance habitats for fish and wildlife.
Projects must be located within the coastal areas of U.S. coastal states, including the Great Lakes states, and U.S. territories and coastal tribal lands. For the purpose of this funding opportunity, the eligible project area is defined as all coastal Hydrologic Unit Code (HUC) 8 watersheds that drain to the sea and any adjacent HUC 8 watersheds that are particularly low-lying or tidally influenced.
NFWF will award approximately grants to create and restore natural systems in order to increase protection for communities from coastal storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion, while improving habitats for fish and wildlife species. NFWF will invest in projects in four priority areas:
In every priority area, NFWF is also interested in funding projects that seek to re-shape thinking on how to protect communities in light of projected environmental stressors and use innovative approaches to address these challenges. NFWF seeks to advance projects that include adaptation to projected future environmental conditions, so that these individual projects are resilient into the future.
