FRCP Resilience Grants

FRCP Available Grant Information 

Fiscal Year 2021-2022 


(Opens Aug. 1, 2020 - Closes Oct. 9, 2020)

The Florida Resilient Coastlines Program (FRCP) provides financial assistance aimed at preparing coastal communities for current and future effects of rising sea levels, including coastal flooding, erosion and ecosystem changes. Resilience Planning Grants (RPG) and Resilience Implementation Grants (RIGs) are available to Florida communities that are required to have a coastal management element in their comprehensive plan. The purpose of RPGs is to promote community resilience-planning, including complying with the “Peril of Flood” statute (Sec. 163.3178(2)(f) F.S.), analyzing vulnerabilities and risks, developing plans and policies that allow communities to better handle changing coastal conditions so they can recover and move forward faster after disasters. The purpose of RIGs is to assist coastal communities in implementing their adaptation/resilience plans by supporting nature-based options for erosion and flood control, elevating public structures, and projects specifically included in existing adaptation/resilience plans.
