  • March 31, 2017

If you are scrambling on the Countywide Resiliency Planning proposal, it might be too late. It was released in January and is due April 12, 2017. Give us a call we can help get your proposal submitted on-time.

The New York State Department of State Office of Planning and Development (“DOS OPD”) is developing a Countywide Resiliency Planning Program for some areas of the State that were not previously covered by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s NY Rising Community Reconstruction (NYRCR) Program. The Resiliency Planning Program will develop community resiliency plans that primarily address climate change risks and vulnerabilities associated with: an increase in frequency and severity of storm and precipitation events; sea-level rise; storm surge; and flooding. Development of these plans will build upon the methods employed under the NYRCR Program following Superstorm Sandy, Hurricane Irene, and Tropical Storm Lee.

In this solicitation, a total of $1 million is available from the Environmental Protection Fund Smart Growth Program for the Countywide Resiliency Planning Grant Program in upstate counties, excluding those covered by the Great Lakes Program or those that undertook previous NY Rising countywide resiliency planning (Montgomery, Herkimer, Oneida, Madison and Niagara counties).

Proposals are Due April 12, 2017
