NFWF Resilient Communities 2020 RFP

Wells Fargo and NFWF have partnered to create the Resilient Communities program. This $3 million per year program aims to help communities in the United States and territories, prepare, strengthen and bounce back more quickly after a disaster. Through preparedness and by taking advantage of natural and nature-based features like wetlands, resilient shorelines, urban tree canopies, natural forests and healthy upstream watersheds, communities can accrue quality of life benefits today. In addition, these projects enhance fish and wildlife resources and avoid or reduce risk to life, and costly and devastating impacts from events such as sea-level risk, floods, droughts, fires and more.

In 2020, Wells Fargo and NFWF will invest approximately $3 million total in these three categories:

  • Category 1: Adaptation through conservation projects Grants in this category support highly impactful and visible conservation projects.
  • Category 2: Community capacity building and demonstration projects Grants in this category help multiple communities understand, organize and take action to address risks and opportunities through preparedness and adaptation.
  • Category 3: Adaptation focused on affordable housing and small businesses Grants in this category support projects that advance scalable, nature-based resilience solutions benefiting affordable housing and/or small businesses in communities vulnerable to impacts from natural disasters.
