The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act has passed Congress and is awaiting the President's signature. This generation defining, bipartisan legislation articulates a strong commitment to advance climate change preparedness. However, now the focus must shift toward finance and implementation of initiatives outlined in the Act and other federal programs, begging answers to questions, like:
What local implications and opportunities for partnership should ULI members be aware of?
How can coastal communities prepare for funding and competitive grants? What are the community-level needs and barriers that need to be addressed to leverage federally
supported resilience projects?
Join the virtual ULI Coastal Forum, a member-initiated network of leaders focused on waterfront development to discuss these critical issues and connect with experts around the country to foster climate resilience in coastal communities.
The Coastal Forum invites members interested in continuing this discussion to stay online from 3:00 – 3:30 pm ET to talk about local issues and brainstorm how the Coastal Forum can support District Council resilience initiatives.
