Description: $10 million is authorized through state bond funds to support Connecticut communities in resilience planning efforts. The program offers the opportunity to build a pipeline of projects, which can later be implemented using upcoming federal grant programs. CT DEEP has two tracks for this program: Track 1 will award up to $250,000 for climate resilience planning, community engagement, and grant writing; Track 2 will fund project development related costs ranging between $300,000 and $700,000+. If awarded, this state funding can be counted towards local match requirements for upcoming federal grant programs (such as FEMA’s BRIC and FMA programs).
