2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund Recipients
NFWF's Press Release | November 29, 2023
On November 29, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced the recipients of the 2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF). Through the 2023 NCRF, NFWF will provide $144 million to 109 projects across 31 coastal states and United States territories. These grants will generate more than $97 million in matching contributions for a total conservation impact of $242 million. The NCRF aims to reduce risks for coastal communities from the impacts of storms, floods, and other natural coastal hazards and to improve habitats for fish and wildlife. All projects address three key priorities, including establishing nature-based solutions, reducing current or projected threats to communities, and improving habitats for fish and wildlife species.
Through the 2023 NCRF, the REPI Program is contributing $15 million in REPI Challenge funding to 11 projects that use nature-based solutions to protect key coastal installations. The 11 projects neighboring DOD installations received over $5.5 million in matching funds from non-federal partners and $336K from NOAA.
