ResilientMass, a new website, is the Commonwealth's initiative for building statewide capacity for climate change adaptation and resilience. This site (click here) hosts the ResilientMass Plan (see below), which integrates hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning, identifying strategies and actions state agencies will take to address risks to human health and safety, communities, critical assets, and infrastructure, natural resources, governance, and economy of the Commonwealth. Visitors to the new site from across Massachusetts can also identify and access climate data, maps, featured websites, tools, and documents relevant to climate resilience.

Access the ResilientMass 2023 Plan here, where you can read the Executive Summary or the Full Plan.

On the Emergency Management webpage, you can read up on Egremont's Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Plan, what it is, who helped prepare it, and the process that led to its adoption by the Select Board, the Commonwealth, and FEMA. You can also download the final plan below.
