New Planning Grants for Climate Resilience

Up to $870,000 is available for planning projects to be awarded during FY22. This funding provides an opportunity for communities to assess vulnerabilities and begin planning for the effects of Minnesota’s changing climate in three areas:

  • how to increase resilience to stormwater and reduce localized flood risk
  • how to improve the resilience of wastewater systems
  • how to reduce human health effects and adapt community services, ordinances and public spaces to the changing climate

See the request for proposals (RFP) with full details on eligibility: who may apply, grant match requirements, and other information that will help applicants submit a proposal.

  • Application deadline: December 21, 2021
  • Match: The minimum match requirement is 10% (ten percent) of the grant amount, either cash or in-kind, provided by any organization involved in the project.
