Up to $200,000 is available! The Connecticut Institute for Resilience and Climate Adaptation (CIRCA) is pleased to announce a new call for Research Proposals. Up to $200,000 is available for research proposals that address resilience of Connecticut’s communities through a two-phase proposal process. While projects involving multiple investigators are encouraged, the principal investigator must be a member of the University of Connecticut faculty.


Proposals should address research on at least one of the following CIRCA priority topics:

Socioeconomic impacts of climate change on Connecticut coastal municipalities; Innovative approaches to resilient engineering and adaptation in Connecticut (e.g. green infrastructure for stormwater management); Innovative financing approaches for adaptation in Connecticut; and Effectiveness of “living shoreline” approaches to coastal erosion control in Connecticut. Short pre-proposals will be solicited and reviewed by the CIRCA Executive Steering Committee and those that are most consistent with the CIRCA mission and these four research priorities will be encouraged to submit a full proposal. The CIRCA share of project costs should not be less than $40,000 or exceed $80,000. All proposals should include a plan to disseminate the results through community engagement.
