ACCIMP Community Planning Grant funds have been awarded to communities identified as imminently threatened by
the Governor’s Subcabinet on Climate Change, Immediate Action Workgroup. These communities are Shishmaref,
Kivalina, Newtok, Koyukuk, Unalakleet and Shaktoolik.
ACCIMP funds are also offered as competitive mini-grants to eligible communities for Hazard Impact Assessments to
identify climate change-related natural hazards, and to provide recommendations for further action by the community.
Community eligibility for this funding is based on demonstration of need due to one or more of the following impacts:
The objective of the Hazard Impact Assessment is to identify and define the hazard impacts in the community, to assess
how those hazards impact the community, and to develop recommendations for how the community might best mitigate
those hazard impacts.
After completing the Hazard Impact Assessment, the community is eligible to apply for a Community Planning Grant to
address one or more of the recommendations of the Hazard Impact Assessment.
Technical assistance is available to all communities for adapting community planning and development to hazard impacts.
