Resilience Challenge Provides Sobering Look at Risks Ahead
Over 80 cities, counties, special districts, and Native American tribes have applied for climate change planning grants under the California Resilience Challenge, offering a unique glimpse of the myriad ways climate change is threatening communities and infrastructure across the state. The California Resilience Challenge is a statewide effort funded by a diverse array of businesses, utilities, and environmental organizations managed by the Bay Area Council. The Challenge’s Advisory Committee and Board of Directors are currently reviewing the proposals, with winning grants scheduled to be announced early April.
