2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund Request for Proposals
On February 16, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the release of the 2023 National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) Request for Proposals (RFP). The NCRF increases and strengthens natural infrastructure to protect coastal communities while also enhancing habitats for fish and wildlife. Since 2020, the REPI Program has contributed funding to NCRF projects that improve resilience to sea-level rise, high-tide flooding, coastal erosion, and storm surge.
Through the 2023 NCRF, NFWF will distribute $140 million to coastal resilience projects that strengthen and restore natural infrastructure. As a key partner on the NCRF, the REPI Program is pleased to contribute $15 million of the $140 million to NCRF projects that benefit military missions, increase military installation resilience to extreme weather events, and help defense communities adapt to climate change.
