About Our Process

 

This week, FEMA senior officials joined local leaders to celebrate non-financial climate planning provided to Crisfield, Maryland, and a resilience grant to Tulsa, Oklahoma, as a result of FEMA’s Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities program. During the events, officials highlighted ways communities can take advantage of the agency’s Direct Technical Assistance program that offers free help in the application process and how FEMA grants can help them become more resilient to severe weather events and future hazards.

FEMA’s Resilient Nation Partnership Network (RNPN) eighth forum will host in partnership with the Sundance Institute. The theme for this year is “Stories of Resilience: Voices That Inspire.” The Forum will feature robust panel discussions on resilience challenges and how we can act together to address them by using storytelling to advance natural hazard resilience. Sessions will take place online Thursdays in April from 1-3 p.m.
