The Northwest Climate Resilience Collaborative is accepting applications for funding of climate resilience projects through its Community Grants Program. The Resilience Collaborative seeks to fund justice-focused, environmental and climate projects that advance community-centered resilience priorities. The Collaborative is particularly interested in supporting frontline communities and tribes or nonprofits and community organizations that serve frontline communities and tribes. Awardees must be based in Washington, Idaho or Oregon. 

The Resilience Collaborative understands frontline communities as those who are disproportionately impacted by climate change. These are the populations who face historic and current inequities, often experience the earliest and most acute impacts of climate change, and have limited resources and/or capacity to adapt. These groups are often communities of color, Indigenous, low-income, or those whose lives and livelihoods depend on climate-sensitive natural resources.

The Northwest Climate Resilience Collaborative, housed at the University of Washington’s Climate Impacts Group, spans ten partner organizations across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and western Montana. The Resilience Collaborative is one of 11 NOAA-funded participatory research programs designed to support frontline communities. Learn more about the NOAA-CAP/RISA network.
