Funding Opportunities

Today a significant number of Tribal governments are engaging in environmental and climate related work. This listing was created to assist tribes who are interested in funding opportunities to assist in that effort. Much of the information is Tribal specific, but some general environmental resources are also included.

University of Oregon Tribal Climate Change Project

The Tribal Climate Change Funding Guide is intended to provide up-to-date information on grants, programs and plans that may assist tribes in addressing climate change through a broad range of sectors. 

EPA Indian GAP Grants

The EPA provides General Assistance Program (GAP) grants to Indian tribal governments and intertribal consortia to build capacity, administer environmental regulatory programs, and provide technical assistance in the development of programs to address environmental issues on Indian lands.

Energy Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs

The U.S. Department of Energy Office of Indian Energy Policy and Programs provides grant, loan, and technical assistance to support tribal energy projects.

Bureau of Indian Affairs

Direct funding supports tribes, tribal consortia, and authorized tribal organizations to plan for climate resilience through competitive awards for tribally designed climate training, adaptation planning, vulnerability assessments, supplemental monitoring, capacity building, and youth engagement. The ocean and coastal management effort supports planning, science and tools, and capacity for coastal tribe's ocean management. Ocean and coastal proposals need not address only climate related concerns.
