Even before Hurricane Harvey, natural disasters have been on the increase in the the United States. Ninety-one storms, wild fires, earthquakes, heat waves, and other weather-related events caused 2016 to tie as the second worst year on record. Nineteen floods were the highest number documented since they started keeping track in 1980. As September is Natural Preparedness Month, we have compiled several resources for disaster-related grants, from an upcoming FEMA mitigation and prevention program to lesser-known opportunities for restoration and replenishment after they occur.

Wetlands Conservation - 3 Funding Sources

Whether they are protecting the air conditioner in our home or the engine in our car, most of us rarely give those hard working filters a second thought, until they stop doing their job. Only when something goes wrong do we recognize their importance. When it comes to the environment, wetlands are Mother Nature’s equivalent to those essential maintenance filters. In fact, according to the EPA, the economic value of the earth’s wetlands is estimated at $14.9 trillion. Yet, like so many other things in our daily life that we take for granted, we rarely think about them or fully appreciate their true value.

The 2017 Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) is the primary source of federal funding to law enforcement agencies. Named after Edward Byrne, a second generation New York City police officer who gave his life in the line of duty, the purpose of JAG is to prevent and reduce violent crime. A hallmark of the grant is the wide variety of justice-related programs it supports, from nurturing human potential to stop crime before it starts, to investing in the most sophisticated technology to abate it after it happens. Both states and local governments can receive the grant, but the state and local solicitations have two separate deadlines. Although the priorities for both are the same, the information below refers primarily to the local solicitation portion of the grant.
