The MPCA has $395,000 available to support climate-planning projects in communities across Minnesota. This funding will help communities assess vulnerabilities and plan for the effects of Minnesota's changing climate in three areas:
- Improving stormwater resilience and reducing localized flood risk
- Improving the resilience of wastewater systems
- Adapting community services, ordinances, and public spaces
Tribal Nations, and local governmental units (LGUs) including cities, counties, towns (townships), soil and water conservation districts (SWCDs), water management organizations (WMOs), water districts (WDs), regional development commissions (RDCs), and the Metropolitan Council of the Twin Cities region are eligible to apply.
Applications due no later than 4pm on January 12, 2023.
