Are you interested in receiving assistance to strengthen and improve the disaster resilience elements of your community’s Comprehensive Plan, Hazard Mitigation Plan, or other long-range plans?
Register today to attend an informational webinar on December 2, 2021 at 2 pm ET (11 am PT). This one-hour webinar will provide:
An overview of the HUD Community Resilience Planning for Disaster Recovery project
An introduction to guidance documents and planning tools that are available to communities
An introduction to the HUD Contractor team
A summary of the benefits to your community by participating in this project
A review of the application process and selection criteria
The primary objective of this project is to develop case studies on how communities can improve comprehensive plans or other long-range plans to enhance community resilience by strengthening disaster preparedness and recovery. A major goal is to demonstrate the use of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Community Resilience Planning Guide and associated tools in community planning. Case studies will be developed to highlight the findings of three communities’ experiences using the NIST guidance and associated tools. These case studies will be published by HUD to provide examples for other communities and HUD grant managers to follow in future community planning efforts.
