Rhode Island Infrastructure Bank Municipal Resilience Program Summary of Findings Reports

Description

Abstract:
Resilient Rhody, Rhode Island’s first comprehensive climate resilience action strategy was released by Governor Raimondo in July 2018. The strategy identifies priority actions the state can take to build statewide resilience. Common throughout Resilient Rhody is the need to work collaboratively with and in support of municipalities statewide. The Municipal Resilience Program (MRP) provides direct support to cities and towns to complete a municipal-driven process that will bring together climate change information and local knowledge to identify top hazards, current challenges, and community strengths. This process will identify priority projects and strategies to improve the municipality’s resilience to all natural and climate-related hazards using a flexible, tested approach called Community Resilience Building (CRB). Upon successful completion of the CRB process, municipalities will be designated as a “Resilient Rhody Municipality” which enables municipalities to apply for dedicated action grants to implement identified projects.
