The Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium in collaboration with the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program are seeking proposals from coastal communities for technical assistance to address a priority need related to resilience. Communities that are ready to take action will form a team with local knowledge experts that can work with the Resilience Expert Team to produce realistic solutions. This approach promotes a dynamic resilience response to individual community needs while formalizing a process that is flexible and can be tailored to other situations and municipalities.
Purpose of Technical Assistance Opportunity:
The overarching goal is to pair expertise from a regional Resilience Expert Team with a community Local Knowledge Expert Team to jointly tackle community vulnerabilities. Applicants should be prepared to discuss their proposals and how it relates to community needs at any time during this review period. A meeting or conference call may be arranged if the review panel has additional questions for the applicant.
