Details

Purpose:

To assist local jurisdictions with mitigation-related planning and public services needs to support risk reduction from the three primary hazards (wildfire, flooding, and earthquake). The Resilience Planning and Public Services Program funds jurisdictions/entities, to create projects that address risks to, or across, community lifelines that support human health and safety and provide mitigation for individual and community-based systems.

Description:

The intent of this NOFA is to fund actionable, impaction planning and public services projects that have measurable results in risk reduction from natural hazards. Planning projects funded under this program may be tied to implementation efforts either within the related MIT-Resilience Infrastructure Program or other projects to reduce risk and increase resilience. If a project is not tied directly to implementation, the focus of the planning project should be actionable, measurable and able to be utilized by jurisdictions immediately.

Eligible activities considered under this program include the creation or updating of current plans for better alignment with mitigation principles or, in some cases, examining hazards and establishing actions to increase resilience and preparedness. Entities may also use the funding to increase public services through establishing educational campaigns or local job training initiatives to ensure disaster preparedness is a vital component of their communities’ resilience efforts going forward.

Additionally, HCD considers awards for funding under this program to local jurisdictions who may be eligible for the Resilient Infrastructure Program (MIT-RIP) but need to build capacity prior to implementing projects.Eligible applicants include:

• Jurisdictions that have eligible projects and are located within the MID areas, OR• Jurisdictions within the DR-4344 and DR-4353 impacted counties that develop an eligible mitigation planning and or public services project that directly benefits the MID, OR• Non-profits with demonstrated experience in the area that develop an eligible mitigation planning and or public services project that directly benefits the MID.

Projects must benefit the area designated by HUD as the most impacted and distressed areas, or “the MID,” within the disaster declared impacted counties under DR-4344 and DR-4353.

Planning activities do not have to meet a National Objective. Public Services projects must meet one of two National Objectives, either benefit low- to moderate-income (LMI) persons or meet an urgent need mitigation,

 

Mitigation and resilience are best gained through collaborative approaches with multiple stakeholders. HCD will encourage coordination among eligible applicants to increase coordination across organizational and geographical boundaries and to improve project outcomes.

Planning and public services projects funded under this program should be inclusive of all residents and community stakeholders.

Additionally, given that resources do exist within the state to address planning efforts, including within HCD, additional technical assistance to applicants and coordination with other state and local partners will ensure there is no duplication of benefits. While local stakeholders have indicated the need for planning dollars, HCD will ensure that potential applicants have exhausted all other avenues of funding prior to receiving an award from this program.
