Tribal Climate Resilience Resource Guide (TCRRG)

Created: 10/16/2017 - Updated: 12/12/2018

Overview

This Tribal Climate Resilience Resource Guide (TCRRG) was developed by the Climate Subgroup of the White House Council on Native American Affairs to provide federal government-wide resources for tribes and climate in a standard framework. Each of the 567 federally-recognized Tribes can visit their Tribal Fact Sheet "Climate Dashboard" to learn about federal agencies and programs that may assist them to build resilience, whether to manage disasters, relocate, contend with shifting subsistence species, mitigate the human causes of climate change, or address other climate impacts on lifeways. Data, maps, tools and groups that may provide additional support are also listed, along with climate awards, work products, and stories of success. The TCRRG also permits other points of entry, including direct access to a starting list of each federal agency or program Tribes and Climate funding, tools, products, training, and support. The Regions entry point lists area climate reports and networks.
