Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise Program

Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise (EESLR) Program proposals serve to enhance the management of regional and local ecosystem effects of sea level rise and coastal inundation through targeted research on key technologies, natural and nature-based infrastructure, physical and biological processes, and model evaluation. Integrating dynamic physical and biological processes with sea level rise and coastal inundation, this program strives to improve the prediction of coastal ecosystem effects to enable enhanced coastal resiliency.

The Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC) is accepting applications for projects to fund under the EJ4Climate Grant Program. Proposals are due by 14 November 2021 and projects will start in February 2022. Initiated by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the CEC established this new grant program to fund grants and cooperative agreements1 that will work with underserved and vulnerable communities, and Indigenous communities, in Canada, Mexico, and the United States to prepare them for climate-related impacts. This program will provide funding directly to community-based organizations to help them develop community-driven solutions to adapt to the impacts of climate change. For this inaugural grant cycle, the CEC is calling for initiatives that: Support community resilience to climate change and climate-related impacts; Yield tangible, equitable benefits for local communities by addressing or adapting to climate change impacts; Consider local knowledge and transform that knowledge into an innovative action or solution; and Build partnerships that respond to community-identified challenges. http://www.cec.org/EJ4Climate/
