Resilience Planning Program

Resilience Planning

These funds support planning efforts and watershed capacity building through local staffing, planning and detailed studies, and long-range planning for community redevelopment in the municipalities, counties and watersheds.

The Community Resiliency Partnership Fund is being launched under this Program to support collaborative, community driven efforts to establish sustainable funding and budgeting mechanisms that promote projects, programs, and standards to reduce a community’s vulnerability to future unforeseen events. Timing for the Community Resiliency Partnership Fund opportunity is as follows:
