Regional Flood Resilience


The State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection launched the Climate Resilience Fund to create a pipeline of shovel-ready projects eligible for federal implementation grants. NVCOG worked with our municipalities to prioritize sites at risk of flooding that had been previously identified in the Multijurisdictional Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The resulting project area includes nine culverts or drainage sites, four of which fall into disadvantaged/EJ census tracts, spanning our region. COG staff will hire a consultant to study these areas, design preliminary solutions, and identify federal funding sources for implementation.
