CIRCA Awards Nearly $100,000 to Support Climate Resilience Across Connecticut - Second Round of Funding Currently Available!

The Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation (CIRCA) is pleased to announce the results of the inaugural round of grants under its Matching Funds Program. Of the many qualified proposals, the CIRCA Executive Steering Committee selected four outstanding projects to receive matching funds. Collectively these projects will work to advance the mission of the Institute, increasing resiliency in Connecticut towns and cities to the threats of climate change. In total, CIRCA will provide nearly $100,000 in matching funds to support these diverse and important projects:

 

The Kent Land Trust: Creation of a Strategic Workplan to Identify Parcels Enhancing Climate Resilience

 

Lower Connecticut River Valley Regional Council of Governments: Regional Long Term Recovery-Land Use Resiliency Plan

 

Wei Zhang and Research Team from the University of Connecticut: Resilient Coastal Communities under Wind and Flood Hazards

 

Stephen Swallow and Research Team from the University of Connecticut: Public Support for Adaptation to Sea Level Rise

 

Please see the CIRCA webpage for funding opportunities through the Institute's Matching Funds Program. Our second round of grants available under the Matching Funds program is currently available!

 

CIRCA will consider requests from Connecticut municipalities, institutions, universities, foundations, and other non-governmental organizations. To be funded, a successful Matching Funds request must have a commitment of primary funding within 6 months of the CIRCA award announcement, or have received a waiver from the CIRCA Executive Steering Committee. CIRCA Matching Funds will provide up to 25% of the primary funder's contribution other than a municipal or State of Connecticut funds to enhance the likely success of project proposals that advance CIRCA research and implementation priorities. Requests are due to CIRCA by July 15, 2015.
