CIRCA Announces Municipal Resilience Grant Availability

2022 Municipal Resilience Grant Program (MRGP)

CIRCA is requesting grant proposals from municipal governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in partnership with municipalities, and councils of governments (COGs) for initiatives that advance two specific climate priorities for the state of Connecticut: 1) implementation of stormwater authorities, and 2) development of a resilience “project pipeline.” Applicants can submit proposals for both tracks, but only one proposal for each track. Projects should be completed in 12-months.

This funding supports the state’s recent legislation, An Act Concerning Climate Change Adaptation (PA 21-115), and recommendations of the Governor’s Council on Climate Change (GC3). Importantly, this funding expands the capacity of municipalities to address local resilience financing and project development needs.  Project proposals in either track should be directly supported by a municipality as an applicant or with a letter of support and products should be transferable to other communities.

For more information and to apply, see the MRGP website.  

A webinar to learn more about this grant funding will be held on January 7, 2022 from 12:00 – 1:00 pm. REGISTER

Eligible Applicants

Connecticut municipalities, NGOs in partnership with municipalities, and COGs.

Proposal Deadline
