September 27, 12pm-1pm
CIRCA’s September webinar will feature NFWF’s National Coastal Resilience Fund‘s (NCRF) team of Field Liaisons, Throwe Environmental, who will describe how CT communities can take advantage of the NCRF and other funding sources. From identifying funding opportunities to clicking “submit,” navigating the grant process can be challenging. In this webinar, participants will learn:
- Key tips and practices to help put together stronger, more competitive, and more successful proposals for various funding sources, including the NCRF.
- Opportunities to develop specific project ideas through proposal development meetings and site visits this winter/spring.
- Information about more sustainable approaches to funding and financing.
NCRF invests in projects that will create, expand, and restore natural systems in areas that will: (1) increase protection for communities from coastal storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion and (2) improve valuable habitats for fish and wildlife species. These are important things to consider as CIRCA’s Resilient Connecticut project moves into the next phase of identifying priority areas for resilience projects.
