Annual Awards Program

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.

Funding categories cover a range of activities, including climate adaptation planning, community-led relocation, managed retreat (ie, partial relocation), protect-in-place efforts, and ocean and coastal management. Since 2011, TCR has distributed over 700 awards totaling more than $74 million.

Fiscal Year 2022 Annual Awards Program

On April 11 2022, TCR announced the 2022 Annual Awards Program Request for Proposals. In 2022 TCR will release approximately $46 million in funding through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and FY 2022 annual appropriations.

The deadline for Tribes and Tribal organizations to submit applications ended on July 6th at 11:59pm EST. TCR will no longer consider applications for FY 2022. The estimated timeline for Tribes to receive awards is expected to be around October 2022.

If you have questions, you can reach out to your regional contact or email TCR for more information.
