NOAA announces grants to improve coastal community resilience

Two new NOAA grant programs will help coastal communities and their managers create on-the-ground projects to make them more resilient to the effects of extreme weather events, climate hazards, and changing ocean conditions.

This builds on NOAA's commitment to provide information, tools, and services to help coastal communities reduce risk and plan for future severe events.

NOAA’s National Ocean Service is supporting the effort with $5 million in competitive grant awards through the 2015 Regional Coastal Resilience Grant Program and NOAA Fisheries is administering the companion $4 million Coastal Ecosystem Resiliency Grants Program.
