Building Regional Resilience to Climate Change Grants for San Diego, California
The San Diego Foundation, in partnership with the San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative, announced the availability of $200,000 for the “Building Regional Resilience to Climate Change” grants on February 17, 2015, with the grant period beginning June 1, 2015.
The grants will support projects that advance community efforts to prepare for climate change. Preference will be given to projects that stress working with more than one city/public agency to address shared challenges, leverage other sources of funding, engage community residents, have the opportunity to share lessons learned, and can be completed within 18 months.
The goal of this program is to advance community efforts to put the "San Diego, 2050 is Calling. How Will We Answer?" report into action, and build the capacity of local governments and public agencies to prepare local communities for the impacts of climate change. The report, released in 2014 by Climate Education Partners and The San Diego Foundation, outlines challenges faced by the San Diego region, as well as a call to action for communities to work together and invest in solutions to manage risks and prepare for a changing climate.
