2022-05-06Regional Dialogues on Climate Resiliency Grant
As the world confronts climate change and its disastrous effects, many institutions now look to Indigenous knowledge and practices to mitigate and adapt to these changes. Despite this, Native communities remain some of the most vulnerable to extreme weather events due to the lack of access to resources and infrastructure. This grant aims to support 10 Native-led organizations to host conversations on climate resiliency and the Justice40 initiative Native communities. Conversations can take place in the form of convenings, conferences, meetings, round tables, etc. First Nations is now accepting applications under our Stewarding Native Lands program for Native-led organization proposals related to planning and hosting state- or regional-focused climate resiliency conversations. First Nations expects to award 10 grants averaging $50,000 each to eligible tribes or organizations. Organizations that have not been formalized as a nonprofit are encouraged to apply through a fiscal sponsor. The Regional Dialogues on Climate Resiliency Grant is separate from the Climate Resiliency in Indian Country Grant. Tribes and Organizations can, and are encouraged to, apply for one or both opportunities if they have interest and capacity. Review processes for each grant opportunity are distinct. Grant support is made possible through funding from the Bezos Earth Fund. [ full text ]
