Impact of CFPF Funding on Buchanan County

Home » Publications and Media » Resilient Virginia Publications » Impact of CFPF Funding on Buchanan County

As climate change continues to unfold, extreme weather events are becoming more and more likely. One such extreme weather event that has increased is extreme precipitation, which often leads to flooding. Extreme flooding has detrimental impacts on communities, especially low-income ones. Flooding can lead to loss of life, property and infrastructure damage, water contamination, and more. And flooding does not only impact coastal communities: inland communities also experience sudden and dangerous flooding.

Buchanan County is one of the inland communities that has experienced increased flooding in recent history. After severe flooding in 2021 and 2022, Buchanan County applied for and received grant funding from the Community Flood Preparedness Fund to develop a Flood Resiliency Plan. This report looks at the progress Buchanan County is making towards developing this plan and the impact it is having on the community.
