OPR: Adaptation Planning Grant Program 

Deadline: Pre-Application Deadline: May 6th, 2024 

Main Application Deadline: May 20th, 2024 

Amount: between $100,000 and $650,000 

Match: Not Required 

https://opr.ca.gov/climate/icarp/grants/adaptation-planning-grant.html 

As communities in California experience more frequent, prolonged, and severe impacts of  climate change, many are faced with planning for and responding to ongoing and worsening  hazards such as extreme heat, flooding, wildfires, drought, extreme weather events, and sea  level rise. Furthermore, many jurisdictions lack the capacity, tools, guidance, and resources to  effectively prepare for these climate impacts. This capacity gap hinders the ability of  communities to develop and implement plans that build resilience and reduce future risk. The Adaptation Planning Grant Program (APGP) will provide $25 million to help fill local,  regional, and tribal planning needs, provide communities the resources to identify climate  resilience priorities, and support the development of a pipeline of climate resilient infrastructure  projects across the state. 

Key Priorities: 

Explicitly and meaningfully prioritize equitable outcomes, particularly in the most  vulnerable communities, by establishing an inclusive funding program that removes  barriers for Applicants and ensures that awardees represent a wide geographic,  economic, and population diversity. 

Encourage communities to equitably plan for and respond to multiple climate risks by centering the needs of vulnerable communities and supporting an all-risk approach to  adaptation planning. These grants encourage communities to conduct integrated  planning activities. As California experiences accelerated impacts of climate change,  many communities are faced with planning for and responding to cascading and  compound impacts (e.g., flooding and landslides following wildfires, or riverine  flooding due to sea level rise). 

Support integrated social and physical infrastructure planning to achieve  community resilience. The program provides flexible funding to meet multi sector/issue planning needs that intersect with climate risks, including but not limited to  land use, transportation, economic, housing, natural resource management, public  infrastructure, and hazard mitigation issues. 

Build statewide capacity to plan for and implement equitable planning strategies by supporting peer-to-peer learning, communities of practice, information sharing, and  publishing replicable case studies in the State Adaptation Clearinghouse. 

Embed equity into the planning process, from project visioning through project  evaluation, by increasing opportunities for shared decision-making, utilizing inclusive  processes, and actively remedying historic underinvestment by fairly distributing access  to the benefits and privileges associated with community investment.

• Active transportation systems planned with community input or aimed at addressing  disparities in bicyclist and pedestrian fatality rates, with opportunities for a higher  federal share in disadvantaged communities. 

• A rule to be issued that will encourage the use of categorical exclusions, expedited  procurement techniques and other best practices to ensure that infrastructure is  constructed quickly and efficiently with as little impact as possible. 

Eligible projects include, but aren’t limited to: 

o Trail construction and maintenance equipment 

o Trail/highway crossings and intersections 

o Recreational trails 

o Trail bridges 

o Resilience improvements to pedestrian and bicycle facilities or to protect or enhance  use.

The Community Change Grants are the final and most comprehensive piece of EPA’s  implementation of ECJP IRA funding. The Community Change Grants will complement grant  programs that EPA launched in 2022 and 2023, including those for the Collaborative Problem Solving, Government-to-Government, and Thriving Communities Grantmaker programs.  Collectively, these programs will empower communities and their partners to design, develop,  and implement multi-faceted community-driven projects. These programs will address the  diverse and unique needs of disadvantaged communities by: 1. Reducing and preventing  pollution; 2. Building resilience to climate change and mitigating current and future climate  risks; 3. Enhancing meaningful involvement in government processes related to environmental  and climate justice; 4. Expanding access to high-quality jobs and economic opportunity through  workforce development; and 5. Bolstering community strength by ensuring that local residents  receive the benefits of investments and have the opportunity to build on them for current and  future generations.
