The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is a transformational opportunity to make an impact against the climate crisis across the country through multiple funding opportunities. It provides nearly $3 billion for NOAA to take action over 5 years in the areas of habitat restoration, coastal resilience, and weather forecasting infrastructure. NOAA will address climate risks and key impact areas, including floods, fire, drought, and extreme heat, and will build resilience in marine and coastal regions. These targeted investments will be scalable and responsive to societal needs for climate information and support and leverage partnerships. A significant portion of the funds will be issued through competitive grants to organizations to do on-the-ground work around the country.

This funding is organized into three main initiatives:

NOAA encourages applications from underserved and non-traditional partners for all of our funding opportunities in support of the Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities through the Federal Government.  To find out more about resilience grants for underserved communities please contact and for marine debris community action coalitions please contact
