Tribal Climate Resilience Program Grants in Washington

The Washington State Department of Commerce has consulted with tribes within Washington state to co-design a strategy for the distribution of $50 million of Climate Commitment Act (CCA) dollars that the Washington Legislature appropriated for tribal climate resilience in the 2023-2025 biennium.

Climate change impacts different tribes in different ways, depending on their unique geography, culture and economy. Tribes have the flexibility to determine the best use of this funding to address their climate resiliency needs.

Funds from this grant program can be used for all project stages: planning, feasibility studies, pre-construction, and construction costs.

Before funds are disbursed, a contract with an agreed upon scope of work and budget will need to be executed between the tribe and the Washington State Department of Commerce.

Funds may be retroactively applied to project costs related to your scope of work, beginning July 1, 2023. Therefore, you will not need to delay work on the grant funded project until the contract is signed. All work associated with these grants must be complete by June 2025.
