Resilient Community Program Applications Being Accepted
There is a new funding and partnership opportunity offered by the Delaware Coastal Programs (DCP) office in DNREC. Called the Resilient Community Program (RCP), DCP will select one DE community to partner with on community resilience planning. DCP will lend staff support, technical assistance, and up to $75K in funding assistance to help one community plan and prepare for hazardous weather and changing climate conditions that pose risks to public safety, economic stability, and quality of life.
The call for applications is open to DE counties and incorporated towns. Unincorporated communities may apply if sponsored by their county. The DCP is open to partnering with a community that has yet to begin resilience planning or supporting advanced planning and implementation efforts if a community has already carried out some steps. Applications must arrive at our office by 4:30pm on January 11, 2016 to be considered for this competitive selection. We anticipate making a selection by February 5, 2016 and starting the project in March, 2016.
