Grant Opportunities


There are a variety of funding sources outside of the Hudson River Foundation and the NY-NJ Harbor & Estuary Program (HEP) that support scientific research, community engagement, planning, and management of the Hudson River and its estuary. Alternate sources of funding are available on a federal, state, and local level.

Listed below are relevant funding opportunities currently accepting applications.

National Coast Resilience Fund — Applications due April 21, 2022

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) will award up to $140 million in grants to create and restore natural systems in order to increase protection for communities from coastal hazards, such as storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion, while improving habitats for fish and wildlife species. NFWF prioritizes projects that are community led or incorporate direct community engagement and benefit underserved communities facing disproportionate harm from climate impacts. NFWF is now soliciting Pre-Proposals for the 2022 National Coastal Resilience Fund. The Request for Proposals is available here.

Drivers and Environmental Impacts of Energy Transitions in Underserved Communities — Applications due April 28, 2022

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking applications proposing community-engaged research that will address the drivers and environmental impacts of energy transitions in underserved communities. For purposes of this competition and the evaluation of applications, “underserved communities” refers to populations sharing a particular characteristic, as well as geographic communities, that have been systematically denied a full opportunity to participate in aspects of economic, social, and civic life, including people of color, low income, rural, tribal, indigenous, and other populations that may be disproportionately impacted by environmental harms and risks.
