As a national leader in resilience, adaptation and disaster preparedness, we’ve transformed more than 20 years of best practices into actionable strategies that are helping communities across the country withstand and recover from natural disasters.
In partnership with a dynamic cross section of industry leaders, we develop tools that help assess risk, build readiness and mitigate the impacts of natural hazards. We also connect people to the necessary resources and financing to help them rebuild in a way that is more resilient to future events. To date, we have awarded $300,000 in pass-through funding to support these efforts.
In addition to our programmatic work, we are working with all levels of government on policies and best practices to advance equitable climate risk reduction and promote solutions to provide climate-ready affordable housing. Recognized nationally as subject matter experts, we provide testimony offering guidance on shaping federal, state and local policy, participate in panels at national and regional conferences, and work with agency officials to advocate for equitable climate solutions.
Climate Risk Reduction is just one pillar of our comprehensive response to climate change. Our Building Resilient Futures team is also leading the industry in Green Communities and Equitable Decarbonization.
