Feds Award Tribes $10 Million for Climate Adaptation

July 23, 2014

The White House has announced a new Tribal Climate Resilience Program and has dedicated nearly $10 million to help tribal communities prepare for and adapt to climate change impacts on their lands. The program will provide direct support through climate adaptation grants and will also offer funding for development of science-based tools for climate resilience planning and adaptive resource management. In addition, five tribal Climate Extension Support Liaisons will be placed in the Department of the Interior’s Climate Science Centers (CSCs), including the Southwest CSC.
