California State Coastal Conservancy offers Climate Ready Grants
Climate Ready grants are intended to encourage local governments and non-governmental organizations to act now to prepare for a changing climate by advancing planning and implementation of on-the-ground actions that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and lessen the impacts of climate change on California’s coastal communities and natural resources.
Climate Ready grants can support a wide range of activities including vulnerability assessments, development and implementation of adaptation strategies, science-based scenario planning, and demonstration projects that help inform others about successful and cost-effective adaptation strategies.
A total of $1,500,000 is available for awards through this competitive grant program. The minimum grant amount is anticipated to be $50,000. The maximum grant amount is anticipated to be $200,000.
Grant applications are due August 28, 2013.
