Project Opportunity Announcement


04/10/2013

The Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC), Alaska Climate Science Center (AK CSC) and North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative (NPLCC) have formed a new partnership aimed at better understanding and adapting to the impacts of climate change on resources of cultural and/or subsistence significance. This partnership centers on funding opportunities that allow Tribal entities, First Nations, and closely affiliated partners to identify viable, real-world responses to climate change, while also recognizing the sensitive nature of many resources. Applications for project funding are due May 9, 2013. Additional information and application instructions can be found at http://www.doi.gov/csc/upload/Tribal-projects-announcement.pdf.
