Resilient Communities Program

Grantor: National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF)
Posted: January 28, 2019
Due: February 19, 2019

Wells Fargo and NFWF have partnered to create the Resilient Communities program. Through improvements to natural features and enhanced community capacity, the program will help communities prepare for future impacts associated with sea-level rise, sustain appropriate water quantity and quality and enhance forest conservation. By taking advantage of natural features like wetlands, resilient shorelines, urban tree canopies, natural forests and healthy upstream watersheds, communities can accrue quality of life benefits today, enhance fish and wildlife resources and help prepare for foreseeable resilience challenges.

Wells Fargo and NFWF will invest in these two focus areas:
  • Category 1 - Adaptation through Regional Conservation Projects: Priority consideration is given to under-resourced communities and projects that help bridge rural and urban community resilience needs with focus on the interconnectedness of natural systems and community well-being. Proposals must include one or more of the project types specified for the eastern region that includes Georgia and have a regional-scale impact.
  • Category 2 - Community Capacity Building and Demonstration Projects: Priority consideration is given to projects that address multiple cities nationwide and measurably benefit and advance social cohesion.
Eligible applicants include non-profit 501(c) organizations, local governments, Indian tribes.
