Regional Climate Collaboratives Program
The Regional Climate Collaboratives (RCC) Program is a capacity building grant program for under-resourced communities that enables cross-sectoral partners to deepen their relationships and develop processes, plans, and projects that will drive and sustain climate action. RCC seeks to strengthen local coordination, leadership, knowledge, and skills with a focus on increasing access to funding resources for project planning and implementation. The program funds Collaboratives to conduct place-based capacity building activities, within a three-year grant term, that support under-resourced communities in accessing funding and resources to plan and implement climate mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency projects. These place-based activities will both align with and inform regional priorities and efforts. RCC does not fund built infrastructure.
Eligible capacity building activities include, but are not limited to, the following:Conduct outreach and build awareness of competitive grant programs; Convene stakeholders to discuss community needs regarding potential climate change mitigation and adaptation projects; Develop community and project plans, demonstrating local needs and identifying multiple-benefit projects for implementation; Support the development of partnerships between stakeholders and potential public and private funding sources; Provide policy, program, and technical advice to stakeholders and align multi-benefit projects with potential funding resources; Serve as an intermediary between community stakeholders and technical assistance programs within relevant agencies and coordinate scientific and technical support from outside experts; Coordinate and implement assistance and training to stakeholders in grant application development, project management, implementation, and monitoring; Assist in the development of local job training and anti-displacement programs and policies.
