Coordination and Collaboration in the Resilience Ecosystem

Last Deadline: July 17, 2020. The Climate Resilience Fund has issued a Request for Proposals, seeking applications for its Coordination and Collaboration in the Resilience Ecosystem Program. CRF thinks of these grants as “glue money”; funding that will be used to build upon, strengthen or connect two or more tools or resources within the climate services sector. Rather than funding the creation of new products, the competition is designed to incentivize innovative collaborations to scale existing resources, thus the size of these grants is intentionally small at a maximum request of $50,000. A total of $300,000 will be available. For more information and to download the RFP, visit: https://www.climateresiliencefund.org/coordination-collaboration.
