Travel Support

TRAVEL SUPPORT APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED - ALL ACCEPTED RECIPIENTS HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED. 
 
Travel support to attend the National Adaptation Forum (Forum) was available in limited quantities due to a handful of generous sponsors and was awarded through a competitive review process. Eligible applicants included staff from government, tribal, non-profit organizations, community leaders, and university students working on or studying climate change adaptation. 
 
The following items are eligible for Travel Support reimbursement: transportation, limited meals, lodging and a single registration fee to attend the Forum. There are five tiers of Travel Support available depending on you travel needs. Should you be accepted for Travel Support, your final reimbursement amount can not exceed the initial amount requested. There are no exceptions. Travel Support will be given as a reimbursement following the Forum. 
 
To provide this generous travel assistance and help keep Forum costs low, all Travel Support Recipients that plan to stay in a hotel while in Saint Paul will be required to stay at the Forum negotiated hotel: the InterContinental Downtown Saint Paul Hotel. Please visit the Accommodations Tab for more information. We highly recommend reservations be made as soon as possible. The National Adaptation Forum room block rate expires on April 19, 2017. Please note: applying for Travel Support does not automatically register you for the Forum or reserve a hotel room. These actions must be done separately.
 
Final recipients for Forum Travel Support were determined by a subset of the Planning Committee and contributing sponsors. Special consideration for Forum Travel Support was given to applicants that are presenting at the Forum, applicants who express a particular justification for how attendance will foster their ability to implement adaptation activities in their work, and from applicants representing underserved communities. If you were approved for Travel Support, we encourage you to work with other participants and share as many travel expenses as possible.

Important Dates: 

  • Itemized receipts for all travel expenses and complete travel reimbursement form must be received no later than June 30, 2017 to be eligible for reimbursement.
