NOAA Funding Opportunity for Coastal Community Climate Adaptation

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is currently seeking to fund climate adaptation efforts for FY 2013-2014 as part of an overall plan to enhance climate adaptation in coastal communities.  The eligible entities are Sea Grant Programs (i.e., colleges, institutions, and coherent area programs).  Interested parties are encouraged to work with the Sea Grant programs in their region to explore opportunities for partnering.  Climate adaptation projects are expected to be conducted in partnership with local community governments, states, and federal agencies.  It is a programmatic priority of this competition to fund technical assistance projects for coastal community climate adaptation where the outcomes of the project would improve the capacity of a specific coastal community to adapt to climate change.  This may include adaptation to economic, ecological, or cultural changes.  Applications are due April 19, 2013.
