Worcester awarded $100K grant for climate change vulnerability assessment

The City of Worcester received a grant of $100,000 to use for a city-wide climate change vulnerability assessment.

The grant will also be used to design an action plan for preparedness activities, and conduct a number of targeted vulnerability assessments of critical sectors with the assistance of qualified consultants.

The project will be managed by Energy and Asset Management staff.

Climate Vulnerability Preparedness

The grant comes as part of the Governor Charlie Baker’s announcement of more than $2 million in grant funding to 82 towns and cities across the state to complete climate change vulnerability assessments and develop resiliency plans through the Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program.

“The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness program is the cornerstone of our administration’s efforts to work with communities on further reducing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting residents, municipalities and businesses from the impacts of climate change. Municipalities on the front lines of climate change, so we are proud to provide our communities the resources, data, and planning tools they need to build resiliency to severe weather and other impacts," said Baker.

The grant and designation program provides communities with technical support, climate change data and planning tools to identify hazards and develop strategies to improve resilience.
