The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) annual National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) grant program provides opportunities for Michigan communities and organizations to invest in sustainable, nature-based resilience solutions. Over the next four years, the NCRF anticipates making over $140 million in funding available annually to support planning, design, and implementation efforts that enhance community resilience and provide benefits to fish and wildlife habitat.
The National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) and Michigan Municipal League are partnering to host, National Costal Resilience Fund Opportunities for Michigan Municipalities, a webinar to highlight this funding opportunity, the type of technical assistance that is available, and share examples of nature-based solutions in the Great Lakes region. There will also be time at the end of the presentation to discuss project-specific ideas with the Field Liaison team in breakout rooms, so please download the NCRF Project Brainstorming Worksheet ahead of time! You can register for the webinar here.
