Planning Process and Financial Assistance Resources Compilation | 3.5.2021

SCIPP has produced a new resource to help communities in the South Central United States take steps toward climate resilience and adaptation. Planning for Climate Resilience and Adaptation: A Compilation of Planning Process and Financial Assistance Resources for Communities in the South Central United States, is a 32-page document that provides a high level overview of planning process and financial assistance resources that are available to local, regional, tribal and state government officials, non-profits, businesses, or anyone who is interested. The resource compilation is broken into four major sections: Documents and Websites, Webinar Series and Podcasts, Consulting Services (Free to $$$), and Financial Assistance Resources. Each resource is hyperlinked for quick access and includes a brief summary.

The document was produced by University of Oklahoma regional and city planning graduate student Jessica Langsdon, SCIPP Deputy Director Rachel Riley, and SCIPP Climate Assessment Specialist Darrian Bertrand.

Previous stakeholder feedback indicated that when it comes to climate resilience and adaptation, some are lacking awareness of the planning and financial resources that are available and/or are overwhelmed with the amount of information available on the Internet. SCIPP’s guide improves ease of access to such information and helps bridge the gap between available climate resilience tools and community knowledge of said tools.
