FY 2018 NOAA Coastal Resilience Grants

NOAA is announcing the Fiscal Year 2018 NOAA Coastal Resilience Grants Program. This year’s coastal resilience funding will award up to a total of $15 million to projects that benefit coastal ecosystems and communities. Building on the success of previous NOAA Coastal Resilience Grant competitions, NOAA continues its comprehensive program to strengthen the nation’s coastal communities’ resilience to adverse events such as extreme weather or long-term changing environmental conditions.

Pre-proposals are required by March 7, 2018, to be considered for the 2018 competition. Applicants will then have a minimum of 40 days to submit their full proposals, once they are notified that they are eligible. For more helpful information for potential applicants, and a link to the official Federal Funding Opportunity, visit the Coastal Resilience Grant Program page.

EPA's 2018 EE Local Grant Program

Up to $3 million in funding for locally-focused environmental education grants is now available. EPA expects to award three to four grants in each of EPA's ten Regions, for no less than $50,000 and no more than $100,000 each, for a total of 30-35 grants nationwide. Through this grant program, EPA intends to provide financial support for projects that design, demonstrate, and/or disseminate environmental education practices, methods, or techniques, that will serve to increase environmental and conservation literacy and encourage behavior that will benefit the environment.

In addition to other environmental topics, the 2018 EE Local Grant Program includes support for projects that reflect the intersection of environmental issues with agricultural best-practices, conservation of natural resources, food waste management, and natural disaster preparedness.  

Applicants must apply under the Request for Proposal (also known as a Solicitation Notice) for the EPA Region in which the funded project would be located.
