DNREC Seeks Applicants for Grant Funding


DOVER, Del.–  The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is looking for applicants for competitive grant funding available to groups that increase resiliency to sea level rise and coastal storms.

Any municipal and county government agency, state agency, not-for-profit organization and college or university that supports the recommendations of Delaware's Sea Level Rise Advisory Committee is eligible to apply.

In previous years, grant award amounts have ranged from $5,000 to $25,000. Recipients must be able to provide one-to-one matching funds or in-kind services.

Planning grants are available for projects including assessments of vulnerability to sea level rise and coastal storms; adaptation plans; improvements to ordinances and building codes; assessments of costs and benefits of adaptation strategies, and design of on-the-ground adaptation projects.

Research grants are available for projects including investigations into the secondary and cumulative impacts of adaptation strategies; modeling of combined effects of sea level rise and heavy precipitation; and development of tools and technology for reduction of coastal hazards impacts.

Applications are due no later than Feb. 6. Interested applicants can submit a conceptual pre-proposal by December 23 to receive eligibility feedback.

Details about the grant program, including applicant eligibility, matching requirements and application procedures can be found online at http://de.gov/coastalgrants.
