About Us

Climate Communities is located in the iconic DC headquarters of the National Association of Realtors, the first LEED-certified building in Washington. We are on Capitol Hill and steps away from Union Station. Come visit us when you are in town.

 In order for communities to become more resilient, their residents must understand how the built environment interacts with natural systems. Since 2005, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Environmental Literacy program has provided resources to help explain the connection between people and places. NOAA recently announced a competition for its “Strengthening the Public’s and/or K-12 Student’s Environmental Literacy for Community Resilience to Extreme Weather Events and Environmental Changes” grants. This funding will support multi-disciplinary projects that actively engage community members about the threats and vulnerabilities associated with their locality. Join us this Thursday, March 25, at 2 PM EST to  learn about NOAA's new grant opportunity and provide tips for competing for this funding. To register, click here.
