Climate Strong Communities

On the 10-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, the Adams administration launched the next generation of equitable, multi-hazard resiliency projects.

The Mayor’s Office launched Climate Strong Communities to develop equitable resiliency projects focused in areas of New York City that still face disproportionate risks from climate change challenges such as extreme heat, coastal flooding, and extreme rainfall.

Climate Strong Communities will invest in communities left unaddressed by limited Hurricane Sandy recovery funding and focus on environmental justice, leverage existing resiliency and sustainability planning and capital commitments, maximize federal and state funding opportunities – such as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and develop a community-centered planning process by proactively engaging with stakeholders.

Stay tuned for updates on Climate Strong Communities and how New Yorkers can get involved.
