The National Coastal Resilience Fund receives support from AT&T to restore, increase and strengthen natural and nature-based solutions in order to reduce risks to coastal communities, including underserved neighborhoods that are often most vulnerable to extreme weather events, and enhance habitats for fish and wildlife.

AT&T and NFWF began working together to build resilience for coastal communities through the National Coastal Resilience Fund in 2020. Through this collaboration, NFWF will invest in projects designed to restore, increase and strengthen natural infrastructure to reduce risks to communities, with a focus on underserved and minority communities, from the growing impacts of sea-level rise, flooding, and increased frequency and intensity of storms, and enhance habitats for fish and wildlife. This conservation collaboration supports NFWF’s efforts through the National Coastal Resilience Fund to restore or expand natural systems such as coastal marshes and wetlands, dune and beach systems, oyster and coral reefs, forests, coastal rivers and floodplains, and barrier islands, features that can help to minimize the impacts of future storms and other naturally occurring events on coastal communities.
