CSA and Partners Receive Landmark Federal Funding!


We are excited to announce that our partnership with the San Diego Regional Climate Collaborative and the Tijuana River National Estuarine Research Reserve has secured an extremely competitive National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) grant for $689,500. The project is one of only six grants awarded out of a pool of 150 national proposals, and is the first West Coast project to receive funding from the NOAA Coastal Resilience Grant Program.-a landmark federal program addressing coastal climate hazards.

This funding will allow the Alliance and our partners to assist 7 cities currently working to address coastal flooding and sea level rise vulnerabilities by making scientific, legal, and economic expertise accessible to city planners and policy makers. Another component of the project will focus on increasing Southern California expertise and application of using natural coastal habitats to help protect the places where we live, work, and play from coastal flooding and extreme storms.
