Coordination and Collaboration in the Resilience Ecosystem (CCRE) Program

Climate Resilience Fund (CRF), Natural Oceanic and Atmospherric Administration (NOAA),

Deadline: 06/18/2021. CRF is proud to administer the Coordination and Collaboration in the Resilience Ecosystem (CCRE) Program. The CCRE Program has provided targeted grants to qualifying organizations for projects that improve, combine, align, or scale existing resources, services, and tools in climate adaptation and resilience planning and implementation for the benefit of the “Resilience Ecosystem,” an open community of public and private entities that is working to build resilience to climate-related impacts and extreme events across the United States. The CCRE Program is made possible through a unique partnership between CRF and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with generous support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. Since 2017, the program has provided 21 grants totaling nearly $1 million for projects contributing to the advancement of the Resilience Ecosystem of climate services providers working to support communities across the nation. These grants have helped create widely applicable tools and resources - databases of effective resilience strategies and qualified adaptation experts, guidance for integrating equitable solutions into adaptation decision making, urban heat island maps, and tools for identifying neighborhoods and communities most at-risk from climate change.
