Specifications

Specifications include, but are not limited to: o help communities prepare for coastal hazards, the NHDES Coastal Program is launching the Design Solutions for Coastal Resilience grant program. These funds are intended to support communication to increase understanding of coastal hazards as well as planning, design, permitting, and construction projects that minimize hazards and enhance community coastal resilience. Projects must take place within one or more of the 17 Coastal Zone communities. A NH Coastal Zone map is available here: http://tinyurl.com/jehdt25.For the purposes of this funding opportunity, coastal resilience is defined as the ability of a community or system to proactively prepare for and "bounce back" from hazardous events such as hurricanes, coastal storms, and long-term sea-level rise and associated flooding, rather than simply react and respond to events. Projects should preserve or enhance ecosystem functions and values. Projects should incorporate the best available climate science for storm surge, sea-level rise, and/or extreme precipitation. Projects should implement a recommendation or action identified in an existing federal, state, or local plan or assessment. Projects should include clear plans for community/stakeholder engagement. Projects should utilize innovative techniques.2 B. Eligible Project Types 1)Creative Communications Solutions: Projects that increase understanding of future coastal flood risk and possible responses to projected storm surge, sea-level rise, and extreme precipitation for a public or specific target audience(s). Projects should communicate science-based information using cutting edge visualization technology and/or innovative messaging to foster and support planning for and investment in coastal resilience. 2)Design & Construction Solutions: Feasibility, planning, design, permitting, and/or construction of site-specific projects that enhance coastal community and ecosystem resilience. Examples include site-specific vulnerability assessments and implementation plans; culvert assessments and replacements; shoreline stabilization or flood damage protection projects that incorporate natural/green/soft infrastructure (sometimes referred to as living shorelines). Note: Shoreline stabilization projects may include some combination of hard and soft stabilization techniques if need is demonstrated (e.g., marsh toe revetment/sill), however projects that exclusively involve armoring shorelines with rip rap or other hard structures are not eligible.
