Summary:

Amendment No. 1 amends the CDBG-MIT Subrecipient by deleting in its entirety Section 15 Citizen Complaints and replacing with their revised agreement language. The Amendment does not change the amount or term of the Agreement. The Grant provides funding for disaster mitigation planning to help reduce risk from future flood hazards.

 

Background/Explanation:

The grant funded Agreement provides substantial benefit to the County by addressing current-day flooding situations and future conditions, including extreme weather events and impacts from sea-level rise. This effort will result in a robust dataset that will be used to educate the public and identify flood resilient strategies to benefit the County and its municipalities.

The planning effort will leverage the state-approved Local Mitigation Strategy and the recently completed Sea-Level Rise and Storm Surge Vulnerability Assessment. Outcomes from the project include flood hazard data acquisition, community asset inventory collection, flood hazard modeling and map development, asset exposure analysis, adaptation measures and policies.
