Posted on November 4th, 2021

Severe weather events result in flooding and other storm-related effects and can cause widespread damage, displace residents, and restrict access and mobility, impacting the well-being of communities across eastern North Carolina. Climate change continues to amplify these risks, further threatening coastal development. Barriers, such as economic and capacity concerns, often hinder the actions needed to enhance resilience and reduce vulnerability.

Building resilience to natural hazards is vital for communities to help maintain quality of life, sustain healthy economies, and ensure the conservation of resources for present and future generations. The North Carolina Resilient Coastal Communities Program provides financial grants and technical assistance to support a proactive, locally driven, and equitable approach to coastal resilience planning and project implementation.

If you are a resident of Washington, please take a few minutes to complete this survey for the City of Washington’s Resilient Coastal Communities Program.

If you are a resident of Beaufort County, please take a few minutes to complete this survey for Beaufort County’s Resilient Coastal Communities Program.

Your input will help the city and county better understand existing issues and needs, flooding impacts and how to maintain quality of life, sustain healthy economies and ensure the conservation of resources for present and future generations.
