A virtual session via Zoom will be held to provide information on this new program and answer questions.

DEM and CRMC are jointly soliciting project proposals for the Ocean State Climate Adaptation and Resilience Fund Grants (OSCAR) Program. Eligible adaptation and resilience projects include those projects on public lands that protect or enhance coastal or riverine habitats to address climate change impacts. The program also includes certain projects that protect public access to shorelines or riverbanks and repair of existing shoreline protection structures in public parks.  The OSCAR Program has about $4 million in state funding available that will be awarded on a competitive basis. The deadline for submittal of proposals is May 17, 2024, at 5:00 pm. Instructions are detailed in the full RFP document below.

To participate, register here via Zoom.  Registrants will be sent the link for the Zoom call.
