The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), the regional planning agency of the Boston metropolitan region, announced the Accelerating Climate Resiliency Mini Grant Program

Supported with funding from the Barr Foundation, MAPC will award grants between $15,000 and $50,000 for projects and programs that "advance strategies protecting people, places, and communities from the impact of climate change."

"While thinking of project proposals, cities and towns should consider how they support equity for vulnerable populations, advance regional collaboration, measurably improve resilience, and create opportunities for learning or development of best practices," according to a post announcing the grant program.
