About this Complimentary Workshop:
In this 90-minute webinar, you will learn how to craft more competitive grant applications and increase the
success rate of your submissions. You will learn about the steps you may need to take before you even start
writing, including how to identify priority projects, determine suitable funding sources, and avoid common
Participants will also have the opportunity to apply what they have learned to a unique funding opportunity: the
National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s (NFWF) National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF). NCRF invests in projects
that will create, expand, and restore natural systems in areas that will (1) increase protection for communities
from coastal storms, sea- and lake-level changes, inundation, and coastal erosion and (2) improve valuable
habitats for fish and wildlife species. NCRF’s team of Field Liaisons, Throwe Environmental, will be available to
help you understand how communities can take advantage of the NCRF, as well as other funding sources.
