WA Representative Derek Kilmer Invests in Climate Resilience, Showing Continued Support for the NW CASC

The recently passed FY21 House Interior Appropriations bill includes nearly $63 million to support the national network of Climate Adaptation Science Centers (CASC), including the Northwest CASC. These investments will allow the CASC network to continue to provide actionable science and research that directly address many of the climate-related challenges unique to different regions of the country.

Congress’ continued support for building climate resilience through investments in the CASC program is helping the Northwest and the country as a whole prepare for and adapt to a changing climate. NW CASC’s University Director Amy Snover notes, “We at NW CASC are tremendously fortunate to have support from Congress in general, and our Washington delegation and Rep Derek Kilmer in particular, for both the NW CASC in our state and the CASC program nationally.”
