The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has announced the release of the 2019 Request for Proposals for the National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF), which provides grant funding to restore, increase and strengthen natural infrastructure to protect coastal communities.

This year, Congress has again provided funding for Title IX of the National Oceans and Coastal Security Act, allowing grants to be awarded through the NCRF, a public-partnership between NFWF, NOAA, Shell Oil Company and TransRe. NCRF pre-proposals are due May 20, 2019, said NFWF.

The NCRF will invest up to $29 million in projects that restore or expand natural features such as coastal marshes and wetlands, dune and beach systems, oyster and coral reefs, mangroves, coastal forests and rivers, and barrier islands that help minimize the impacts of storms, rising sea levels and other extreme events.

Projects funded will be located within the coastal areas of U.S. coastal states, including the Great Lakes states.

U.S. territories including Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are also eligible for funding support.
