Am I Eligible?

There are no active application cycles for the Resilience Planning Program at this time. If another cycle opens eligible applicants include state agencies, counties, and local governments within counties that received a federal disaster declaration in 2012 and/or 2013. The state encourages local governments to partner with other jurisdictions, nonprofits, private sector, or other partners as necessary. Where applicable, multi-jurisdictional and multi-objective projects will be more competitive.
