**This is not a grant. This is technical assistance provided through an EPA contract used to hire consultants who are experts in community engagement, meeting facilitation, disaster resilience, and smart growth.*
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and FEMA Region IX are seeking proposals from regional partners in California that are interested in receiving technical assistance to build resilience to natural disasters.
The technical assistance will include:
a facilitated process based on ready-to-use tools on how to:
engage project partners
assess vulnerability and develop mitigation strategies
take action and implement projects
networking with state, federal, and peer experts on disaster resilience.
Your region may need help getting started with early steps like engaging a broad coalition of partners, or you may be ready to focus on taking action in the form of built projects and policy changes. EPA and FEMA are interested in working with regional partners at any stage in the process.
