Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Grants

Investing in Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency

NOAA has developed the Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Grants Program to build resilience of coastal ecosystems and communities in the U.S. The Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency awards will fund projects that develop healthy and sustainable coastal ecosystems through habitat restoration and conservation.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • restore habitat to support healthy fish populations and provide ecosystem functions that reduce hazards and risks associated with extreme weather events and a changing climate;
  • provide sustainable and lasting ecological benefits and resiliency to extreme weather events, a changing climate, and allow for adaptation to known or potential climate change impacts;
  • implement on-the-ground restoration actions that result in immediate beneficial impacts;
  • demonstrate collaboration among multiple stakeholders;
  • receive approval from the state governor; and
  • result in socioeconomic benefits associated with restoration of healthy and resilient coastal ecosystems.

This grant program was developed to complement the Regional Coastal Resilience Grants program, which focuses on the development of safe and productive coastal communities through the development of policies, incentives, regulations, standards, and other tools and strategies.

Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Project Funding at a Glance

  • Projects will primarily be funded through cooperative agreements.
  • Up to $4 million will be available in 2015 for 1-3 year projects.
  • We anticipate typical awards will range from $500,000 to $1 million.
