Climate Resilience and Community Access Grant Program

The grants seek to invest in the local conservation community by creating new programs or developing organizational or agency capacity to enhance desert resilience to climate change and foster conservation of the desert as a carbon sink; promote equity in access to outdoor recreation throughout the Valley; or improve natural resources management on existing conservation lands.

Applications that represent a sustainable investment, incubate local expertise and capacity and serve historically underserved and economically disadvantage communities are especially encouraged.

Grants should be for projects of up to 24 months, and grant requests should range from $100,000- – $400,000.

Local governments, tribes and nonprofits are eligible to apply.
