NOAA Pacific Services Center offers grants to organizations that are both involved in the protection, restoration, management, and use of coastal and ocean resources and are committed to promoting community resilience.
Grants.gov is the website used by federal agencies to announce and process grant opportunities. NOAA grants are typically announced in July and December. To find grants from the NOAA Pacific Services Center, select "Find Grant Opportunities" on the Grant.gov site. Then, perform a "Basic Search" using the Center's Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number: 11.473.
Coastal Resilience Networks (CRest) is a new and exciting grant opportunity for the Pacific Islands, Gulf of Mexico, and West Coast regions. The program funds projects that help communities become more resilient to the threats posed by coastal hazards (which include storms, flooding, sea level rise, climate change, etc.).
The Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Hawai`i grant program funds projects that promote meaningful outdoor experiences for students and professional development opportunities for teachers in environmental education. B-WET Hawai`i grants focus on earth systems sciences, climate change, and community resilience to hazards.
