NFWF will award approximately $29 million in grants to create, expand, and restore natural systems in areas that will both increase protection for communities from coastal storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion while also improving valuable habitats for fish and wildlife species. NFWF will invest in projects in three focus areas:
Project Preliminary Design and Site Assessment Project Final Design and Permitting â€‹â€‹Project Restoration and Monitoring Many of the projects will support natural restoration efforts proven to restore natural storm mitigation services and reduce flood risk from episodic events. NFWF seeks to enhance and further refine these activities through grant making to learn and share best practices for the greatest impact nation-wide.
NFWF is also interested in funding innovative projects that seek to re-shape our thinking on how to protect communities in light of projected environmental stressors that may go beyond neighboring habitat restoration alone, to truly novel approaches to address these challenges. NFWF seeks to incorporate adaptation to the projected future conditions of each investment.
