Financing Critical Infrastructure and Redevelopment Projects

Wednesday, November 28th, 2:30-4:00 pm EST

Attendees will gain insight on advocacy efforts and how to access different resources to finance more resilient critical infrastructure to protect business and industrial districts. Learn how communities have leveraged federal funds with private capital to fund redevelopment projects and bring back businesses to disaster-impacted commercial areas.

How to Engage Local Businesses in Critical Disaster Preparation Activities

Wednesday, December 5th, 2:30-4:00 pm EST

A recent Gallup survey found that at least 30 percent of surveyed small businesses were closed for more than 24 hours due to an incident beyond their control. Many small businesses lack a plan to help them continue operations in the event of an economic disruption or natural disaster. Learn how to effectively recruit local businesses in preparation activities, such as developing a business continuity plan, so that they increase their resilience to the negative impacts of such an event.
