Project Summary

Resilient Virginia is partnering with Virginia Commonwealth University Research Institute for Social Equity (RISE) to shed light on climate justice issues in the Commonwealth through the Environmental Justice Data Project, funded by the Windward Foundation. The project is focused on data collection and community outreach to inform researchers about the impact of disasters and environmental hazards on critical infrastructure. Resilient Virginia and RISE will work with three local governments representing historically marginalized and underserved communities to secure funding for climate resilience projects.  To that end, efforts will involve finding grants that address specific community needs and assisting local governments in applying for them. Our partnership will work to elevate the voices of those who have been routinely ignored in the fight for a more resilient future.

Resources Developed by Resilient Virginia for this Project

Funding Hub
Financial resources for your resiliency initiatives could be within reach through Federal or State programs. To support communities across the Commonwealth, we gathered multiple grant and funding programs into the Resilient Virginia Funding Hub.

Spotlight on Webinar Series

We developed the Spotlight On webinar series as a platform to take a deeper dive into resilience topics. Join us for the inaugural session on May 30th to learn more about funding for climate-ready communities. This session will go beyond an overview of funding opportunities and take a closer look at what is out there and how communities can access it.
