Success Stories

Key West Praises Compact

As a small City with a small budget, the Compact has greatly improved our ability to fund climate mitigation and adaptation work by making our grant applications more competitive.  Even if the grantor hasn’t heard of the Compact, the fact that we are a part of a larger, coordinated regional effort and will be able to share our experiences with a larger audience, makes us more attractive as a grant recipient.   When Sea Grant – Gulf of Mexico, chose the City of Key West over all other Florida applicants for their Climate Adaptation Grant, they noted our partnership with the Compact as one of their deciding factors. — Allison Higgins, Sustainability Coordinator, City of Key West
