Welcome to the Town of Chilmark, MA
Town to begin Municipal Vulnerabilty Preparedness Program with $15,000 grant
Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Program

In September 2016, Governor Charlie Baker signed Executive Order 569, instructing state government to provide assistance to cities and towns to complete climate change vulnerability assessments and resiliency planning.  The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness grant program (MVP) will provide support for cities and towns across the state to begin the process of planning for resiliency.  The state will award communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans.  Communities will be able to define extreme weather and natural and climate related hazards, identify existing and future vulnerabilities and strengths, develop and prioritize actions for the community, and identify opportunities to take action to reduce risk and build resilience.

MVP certified providers will be trained in workshops across the state to provide technical assistance to communities in completing the assessment and resiliency plan using the Community Resilience Building Framework.  Towns and cities will then be able to choose the provider of their choice from a list of certified providers.

Communities who complete the MVP program will become certified as an MVP community and eligible for follow-up grant funding and other opportunities.
