The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has awarded a Regional Coastal Resilience Grant to the Gulf of Mexico Alliance. The funding will ultimately allow 10 coastal communities in the Gulf of Mexico to complete proactive projects to enhance their resilience. This grant supports risk-communication improvement, updates of tools that communities identify as vital to decision making, and development of a coastal resilience road map document that will guide communities in preparing for hazards.

To initiate the project, the Alliance is conducting a survey to assess the use of resilience tools and services by various audiences in the Gulf of Mexico. The intent is to identify what gaps (if any) exist in tools and services for the region.

The assessment is currently open here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HT9VQD2. Thank you for your participation!
