The Branch of Tribal Climate Resilience (TCR) provides financial support for federally-recognized Tribal Nations and authorized Tribal organizations through a competitive funding opportunity to build Tribal resilience capacity. Since 2011, TCR has distributed over 1,050 awards totaling more than $240 million. In FY 2023, TCR awarded approximately $120.8 million in funding through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, Inflation Reduction Act, and FY 2023 annual appropriations.

The Tribal Climate Resilience Annual Awards Program supports both planning and implementation projects, including for climate adaptation planning, community-led relocation, managed retreat (ie, partial relocation), protect-in-place efforts, ocean and coastal management, as well as for habitat restoration and adaptation.

You can view a map with information on Tribes’ and Tribal organization’s previously funded projects on the Tribal Climate Resilience Annual Awards Dashboard.
