Resilient Virginia provides critical assistance to help our communities adapt to climate, environmental, social, and economic challenges. However, we recognize that the unique character of each community requires unique assistance. To determine how we can best serve our communities, we must seek input from all sectors across the state and incorporate their needs into our programs and projects.

On December 12th, we held our 2023 Listening Session with representatives from state and local governments, nonprofits, businesses, and academic institutions across the state to hear what they had to say. The discussion centered around what was preventing communities from building resilience, strategies for overcoming these roadblocks, and in what ways we can work together and collaborate to get more done. We walked away with pages of notes and suggestions that will help us determine how Resilient Virginia can fill the gaps; identify and plan the most impactful programs going forward; and connect groups for partnerships and collaborations.
