Press Release, Hoopa Valley Tribe

The Hoopa Valley Tribe is pleased to announce that the Climate Adaptation Plan has been selected as a recipient of the Round 1 Adaptation Planning Grant Program in the amount of $338,448, provided by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (OPR). This new grant program supports integrated climate adaptation projects and planning efforts in California. “We’re thrilled to announce our project is one of 14 awarded in this first round!,” Hoopa Planning Director Jaclyn Robinson, said. “This funding will enable us to include workshops with Tribal Department staff and the Tribal community to determine climate adaptation priorities.”

With the support of the Adaptation Planning Grant, the Climate Adaptation Plan will be able to complete climate adaptation scoping activities, a Vulnerability Assessment, and Climate Adaptation Plan (Plan). An online survey component will increase participation and accessibility to this process. The Plan will be developed so that it can be readily updated as resilience strategies are implemented, monitored, and evaluated.
