Contract for services to a USA nonprofit organization, local or state government, tribe, IHE, business, or other organization to assess resilience projects undertaken to protect the environment. The selected contractor will evaluate designated projects that were designed and conducted in order to reduce the adverse impacts of coastal storms, erosion, flooding, and other natural disasters or phenomena.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) seeks a qualified contractor to evaluate resilience investments made through two grantmaking programs: The National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) and the Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Program (Sandy).
The National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) aims to restore, strengthen, and enable rapid recovery of natural systems so they may protect coastal communities from the impacts of coastal storms, sea and lake level changes, flooding, and coastal erosion. By restoring or otherwise enhancing natural systems, habitat improvements can simultaneously benefit fish and wildlife resources.
The NCRF invests in conservation projects throughout the United States that restore or expand natural features such as coastal marshes and wetlands, dunes and beach systems, oyster and coral reefs, forests, coastal rivers and floodplains, and barrier islands that minimize the impacts of storms and other naturally occurring events on nearby communities. NCRF has invested millions of dollars to strategically plan for, design, restore, and monitor coastal habitats that reduce threats to flooding from sea level rise, coastal erosion, increased frequency and intensity of storms, and impacts from other chronic and episodic events. Through the Hurricane Sandy Resiliency Grant Program, NFWF and the Department of the Interior (DOI) have also invested in resilience projects in the northeastern states most impacted by Hurricane Sandy. These funds supported projects designed to improve the resilience of ecosystems and communities to coastal storms and sea level rise.
The Scope of Work for this contract is for an evaluation of up to 125 projects funded under the National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) and 39 projects funded under the Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Program (Sandy), focusing on the evaluation questions specified.
