Fiscal Year 2023 offers funding for climate resilience planning, implementation, habitat restoration and adaptation, as well as equity building set-asides for first time applicants and for Relocation, Managed Retreat, or Protect-in-Place (RMP) coordinators.

In 2022, TCR funded over $44.6 million in 118 awards, directly supporting Tribes and tribal organizations, while supporting additional Tribes in the process through cooperative planning, information-sharing, and planning tools. These funds were awarded to aid Tribally designed climate adaptation training and planning, resilience, coastal ocean management efforts, youth programs, and relocation efforts including implementation of climate strategies. Take a look at what was awarded for the fiscal year 2022 and in years past.
