This funding opportunity from the Gulf Research Program (GRP) of the National Academies for Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will support proposals from academic and nonprofit institutions that implement youth leadership training programs (which may include the development of new, or expansion of existing programs) that equip youth (ages 15-24) with the knowledge, skills, and expertise necessary to build resilience to climate hazards and associated disasters in the Gulf of Mexico or Gulf of Alaska’s coastal regions. Proposed projects should be designed to equip youth participants with the knowledge, skills, and expertise needed to effectively work in their communities to explore and articulate collective solutions to climate-related hazards and associated disasters. 

The GRP has made a total of $2 million available to support projects under this funding opportunity and anticipates making individual awards of up to $500,000 for projects not exceeding three years in duration.
