Flood damage has become more common and more costly – but it doesn’t have to be that way.
We can become flood ready together – developing in safer places, protecting the functions of the watersheds that protect us, adapting our critical infrastructure and preparing for emergencies.
All over the state, select board members, planning commission members, town officials, planners, and citizens are working to make our communities flood resilient. Is your community flood ready?
Find out what steps your community can take to become flood resilient and qualify for post-disaster funds through the Emergency Relief and Assistance Fund / ERAF.
