This program provides funding to help fill local, regional, and tribal planning needs, provides communities the resources to identify climate resilience priorities, and supports the development of a pipeline of climate resilient infrastructure projects across the state. As communities in California experience more frequent, prolonged, and severe impacts of climate change, many are faced with planning for and responding to ongoing and worsening hazards such as extreme heat, flooding, wildfires, drought, extreme weather events, and sea level rise. Furthermore, many jurisdictions lack the capacity, tools, guidance, and resources to effectively prepare for these climate impacts. This capacity gap hinders the ability of communities to develop and implement plans that build resilience and reduce future risk.
