Funding the Future: Resilience Planning Across Public and Private Sectors

In recent years, resilience planning across all domains has become a crucial part of national, state, and local discourse. It is essential to engage policy makers and funders in early planning phases to better understand how policy can influence funding opportunities for these projects. Architects, planners, landscape designers, policy makers, financiers, and funders can and should work together to improve this critical part of the resiliency design process.

This free, interdisciplinary program will focus on understanding cross-industry relationships and strategies to address the complexities of planning, financing, and insuring waterfront plans and projects. Participants will leave with a template for creating a project funding strategy, along with a checklist of experts and professionals to involve.

Using Jamaica Bay as a case study for New York City’s 520 miles of coastline, we will address the challenges of implementing forward-thinking resilient design strategies in the New York City region.
