Wells Fargo and NFWF announce Resilient Communities grant program

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and Wells Fargo (WFC) announced on Feb. 13, 2017 the launch of the Resilient Communities grant program. Through a commitment from Wells Fargo of $10 million over the next four years, this new program will improve natural resources and enhance local capacity to help communities prepare for expected impacts associated with water quantity and quality issues, forest conservation challenges, and sea-level rise. Click here for the full press release.

The program places special emphasis on inclusion and helping traditionally underserved, low- and moderate-income communities build capacity for resiliency planning and investments in “greener” infrastructure. Lower income communities are often most vulnerable, communities are stronger and bounce back more quickly after an impact/disaster when people work together and have the skills, knowledge and capacity to rebuild.

Wells Fargo and NFWF will invest in these two focus areas:  Category 1: Adaptation through Regional Conservation Projects  Category 2: Community Capacity Building and Demonstration Projects
