2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund RFP Now Open


2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund RFP Now Open


The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Department of Defense, Occidental, Shell, and TransRe is now soliciting Pre-Proposals for the 2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund. The Request for Proposals is available here.

NFWF will award up to $140 million in grants to create and restore natural systems in order to increase protection for communities from coastal hazards, such as storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion, while improving habitats for fish and wildlife species. NFWF prioritizes projects that are community led or incorporate direct community engagement and benefit underserved communities facing disproportionate harm from climate impacts.

This year, the National Coastal Resilience Fund will invest in projects in four project categories:

1. Community Capacity Building and Planning

2. Site Assessment and Preliminary Design

3. Final Design and Permitting

4. Restoration Implementation

Pre-proposals must be submitted through NFWF’s Easygrants system no later than Wednesday, April 12, 2023. An informational webinar has been scheduled for Thursday, March 2, 2023 3:00-4:30pm ET to provide an overview the National Coastal Resilience funding opportunity. Applicants are strongly encouraged to participate and can register for the webinar here.

For more information or questions about this RFP, please contact Jessica Grannis (Jessica.Grannis@nfwf.org) or Arielle Mion (Arielle.Mion@nfwf.org).
