FEMA announces 2012 Community Resilience Innovation Challenge recipients

from IAEM

FEMA on May 7 announced the selection of 30 recipients, among more than 1,900 applicants, to receive funding under the FEMA 2012 Community Resilience Innovation Challenge program. The program focuses on building local community resilience to man-made and natural disasters, with an emphasis on innovation, collaboration with community stakeholders, sustainability, repeatability, and measurable benefits to the community. This year's award recipients are recognized for programs designed to continue to move community preparedness forward, and assist local areas in building and revitalizing community-based partnerships to advance the nation's resilience to disasters. The program is being funded by The Rockefeller Foundation and administered by the Los Angeles Emergency Preparedness Foundation, which acted as a third-party intermediary to encourage local communities to engage in creative activities that enhance disaster resilience. Details about the program and a summary of each recipient's project can be found on the program website. more
