Ten organizations in North Carolina will collectively receive more than $600,000 in resilience accelerator grants from the Duke Energy Foundation. The grant funding will support the RISE Regional Resilience Portfolio Program by supporting the implementation of priority projects identified in each of the nine RISE regional portfolios. The grant program will allow each region to kick-start all or part of a project. This conclusion of the RISE program fulfilled the needs of communities to identify and prioritize resilience projects to the point of being shovel-ready so they can receive funding. Read on for project details about how each RISE region will use their grant funding.
