The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Gulf Research Program (GRP) is developing new programming around health and community resilience that prioritizes the needs and challenges of communities that are at risk from climate hazards and other disasters. The GRP is seeking proposals from nonprofits and community based organizations (CBOs) with 501(c)(3) status that explore innovative methods or approaches to engage communities about climate change impacts on human health or community resilience. The nonprofits and CBOs must have an existing climate adaptation or disaster resilience program in the GRP’s geographic region (i.e., the coastal regions of one of the five Gulf of Mexico states or Southcentral Alaska). The GRP encourages partnerships with other organizations, institutions, academia, etc.

This funding opportunity is an initial step toward understanding how to effectively engage communities about the impacts of climate change. Specifically, the GRP is seeking proposals that explore innovative methods or approaches to engage communities about climate change impacts on human health or community resilience.

The GRP expects to award up to six proposals under this funding opportunity. Applicants may request up to $300,000 for projects that are up to 18 months in duration.

Application Deadline: Full proposals are due by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on August 12, 2021.
