Mark your calendars for the North Carolina Resilient Communities Funding Forum taking place Feb. 28, 2023 at the Greenville Convention Center.

Funding is often a barrier to resilience project implementation and this free, one-day forum will focus on addressing this barrier by introducing community leaders, policymakers and other stakeholders to federal, state and nonprofit funding opportunities for resilience-related projects. The event will allow time to engage with potential funders, who will be on hand to give presentations and answer project-specific questions during break-out sessions. A grant writing session is also planned to provide attendees with practical tools and strategies to take their project one step closer to reality. 

Continuing education credits, pending approval, will be provided for AICP and certified floodplain managers. Engineers will be provided a certificate of participation to self-file for PDHs.

This event is being cohosted by the Resilient Communities Program, Regions Innovating for Strong Economies and Environment (RISE) and Resilient Coastal Communities Program, and their respective divisions in the NC Office of Recovery and Resiliency and the Division of Coastal Management

Registration will open in January 2023.

Registration is required and more information will be available on this webpage in early January. This is a space-limited event with priority for stakeholders representing the RISE and RCCP communities within the geographies shown on the map below.
