Resilient Communities 2019 Request for Proposals Wells Fargo, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

Deadline Passed 02/19/2019. Deadline Unknown for 2020. Wells Fargo and NFWF have partnered to create the Resilient Communities program. Through improvements to natural features and enhanced community capacity, the program will help communities prepare for future impacts associated with sea-level rise, sustain appropriate water quantity and quality and enhance forest conservation. By taking advantage of natural features like wetlands, resilient shorelines, urban tree canopies, natural forests and healthy upstream watersheds, communities can accrue quality of life benefits today, enhance fish and wildlife resources and help prepare for foreseeable resilience challenges. The program places special emphasis on equity, social inclusion and helping traditionally low- and moderate-income communities build capacity for resilience planning and investments in “greener” infrastructure. It also emphasizes supporting American Indian/Alaska Native communities and Indigenous Peoples whose livelihoods and economies rely on their self-determined management of water, land and other natural resources and infrastructure that will be impacted increasingly by sea level rise, drought, flooding and fires.
