Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation (CMRA) integrates information from across the federal government to help people consider their local exposure to climate-related hazards. People working in community organizations or for local, Tribal, state, or Federal governments can use the site to help them develop equitable climate resilience plans to protect people, property, and infrastructure. The site also points users to Federal grant funds for climate resilience projects, including those available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

The CMRA Assessment Tool provides information on past, present, and future climate conditions. Use it to understand exposure in your area so that you can effectively plan and build more resilient infrastructure in your community.

It is intended to be informative yet easy to use. Explore the User Guide, which will walk you through some of the basic steps in leveraging the application to begin to understand climate exposure in your community and across the country.

CMRA is designed to work in a complementary the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit. It integrates decision-relevant information from across the U.S. Federal government, including:

  • Climate maps and data — both historical observations and future projections;
  • Non-climate data — including building codes and economic justice and social vulnerability information; and
  • Federal grant funding opportunities.
