The Integrated Climate Adaptation and Resiliency Program is developing three new grant programs authorized in the 2021 State Climate Budget to fund local, regional, and tribal climate adaptation and resilience efforts across the state:

  • The ICARP Adaptation Planning Grant Program will invest $25 million over multiple funding rounds for local, regional, and tribal governments to support climate adaptation and resilience planning activities.
  • The ICARP Regional Resilience Planning and Implementation Grant Program will invest $250 million over multiple funding rounds to scale regional climate resilience solutions.
  • The ICARP Extreme Heat and Community Resilience Grant Program will support local and regional heat adaptation by investing $100 million in extreme heat and urban heat island mitigation activities.

Future program information, timelines, and news will be updated in the sections below.

Programs

Regional Resilience Planning and Implementation Grant Program

The Regional Resilience Planning & Implementation Grant Program will support regional projects and plans that improve regional climate resilience and reduce risks from climate impacts, including wildfire, sea level rise, drought, flood, increasing temperatures, and extreme heat events.

  • The program will invest $250 million over three funding cycles available to local, regional, and tribal governments.
  • The first grant cycle will include $25 million, of which at least $12.5 million will support regional climate adaptation planning efforts and the development of action plans that prioritize projects or actions necessary to respond to the greatest climate risks facing the region, particularly in the most vulnerable communities.
