    Request for Grant Applications, FY 2020-21

    The Vision of the Florida Resilient Coastlines Program (FRCP) is that Florida’s coastal communities are resilient and prepared for the effects of rising sea levels, including coastal flooding, erosion and ecosystem changes. This will be accomplished by synergizing community resilience planning, natural resource protection tools and funding.

    The FRCP announces the availability of state funds for innovative coastal projects under its applications for fiscal year 2020-2021. Eligible applicants include Florida’s 35 coastal counties and the local governments within their boundaries that are required to include a coastal element in their comprehensive plan. Florida regional planning councils, national estuary programs, colleges, community colleges and state universities may partner with an eligible local government; however, they may not apply as the grantee. (Nonprofit groups are not eligible to apply but can serve as a consultant to an eligible applicant.)
