Funding

The Tribal Climate Change Funding Guide is intended to provide up-to-date information on grants, programs and plans that may assist tribes in addressing climate change through a broad range of sectors. We will update this guide regularly, so please check back often. If you have questions or updates for this guide, email: kathy@uoregon.eduPlease note that for entries that are accepting applications continuously, the grant deadline column will list "12/31/2017" as the grant deadline. This ensures that those grants will appear immediately after those grants with a set deadline.

Desert Landscape Conservation Cooperative - Landscape Conservation Planning and Design (USFWS) USFWS

The Desert LCC is embarking on a Climate-Smart Landscape Conservation Planning and Design project that will: produce spatially explicit data and information about focal resources, chosen by the Desert LCC members; seek to understand the effects of climate change and other landscape stressors on natural resources; integrate social and economic information to understand what these resources might look like in the future; and result in collaborative adaptation responses that are useful and implementable by our partners.

USFWS/NPLCC 2016 Funding Opportunity Announcement USFWS, NPLCC

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) receives funds to support collaborative science and knowledge activities of the NPLCC. The USFWS Pacific Region awards these funds for financial assistance through a competitive process for projects, studies, and events that support natural and cultural resource conservation in the face of climate change and other landscape-scale stressors. The NPLCC recognizes the importance of considering both western science and traditional knowledges to advance landscape-scale conservation and sustainable resource management.

Natural Resource Conservation, Cultural Resource Conservation, Climate Change, Financial Assistance Awards are contingent on the availability of funds. A total estimated amount of $50,000 to $200,000 USFWS funding for 1 to 5 projects may be awarded under this announcement... (see link for details) North Pacific Link
Funding Opportunity: pre-proposal request Western AK LCC Terrestrial Systems Theme USFWS, Western AK LCC (Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative)

RFP closed. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) receives funds to support collaborative science and knowledge activities of the Western Alaska Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC). The Service administers these funds through financial assistance on a competitive basis for projects, studies, and events that advance the scientific and public community’s understanding of large-scale changes in landscape characteristics and the impacts of these changes on important species.

Terrestrial Systems Due to the limited funds available, modest funding requests (< $100,000.00) are encouraged, however, higher amounts may be requested with appropriate justification. National Link
Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, Pacific Northwest CESU USGS

Deadline passed as of August 18, 2017. Deadline for 2018 unknown. US Geological Survey is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU parnter to develop a synthesis of knowledge that clearly identifies what is known and not known about the response of Northwest forest communities to changing fires regimes. This synthesis will provide an important resource for regional managers and help identify future science opportunities for the NW CSC to pursue. In particular, managers need information about how climate change will affect fire regimes and what plant communities will return after stand-replacing fires. This information is critical for development of post-fire restoration projects and forest management plans.
