Accelerating resiliency planning in communities across the Commonwealth

Our Partners

At its formation, Resilient Virginia initially engaged the support and participation of the Governor’s office, particularly the Office of the Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, which was a major supporter of the 2017 Resilient Virginia Conference. We have also worked with the State Secretariats in the Natural Resources, Agriculture and Forestry, and Energy areas.

Resilient Virginia’s goal is to engage key stakeholder groups around the state. Our partners for program development include local governments and planning district commissions, state government agencies, K–12 and higher education academic institutions, national organizations, major corporations and local businesses, and community organizations. Organizations that Resilient Virginia works with include:

  • Local public sector representatives, including planning district commissions, city and county governments, emergency management departments, and the state-level associations, Virginia Municipal League (VML) and the Virginia Association of Counties (VACO).
  • State agencies with related programs, which include environment, energy, emergency management, agriculture, health, transportation, and economic and community development.
  • Private sector representatives, including resiliency consultants and trade associations such as those representing civil engineers, water and wastewater companies, emergency management, the Green Building industry, and the energy industry.
  • NGOs that work in related areas including agriculture groups, clean energy and environmental organizations, health and social welfare groups, and environmental justice, grassroots sustainability and affordable housing organizations.
  • Academic institutions, including the major state universities, the community college system, and private universities, as well as maintaining the capacity to engage with the K-12 school districts.

Resilient Virginia also has assembled an Advisory Committee to provide program and development assistance from a range of resiliency-related perspectives.
