Resilient Communities Program
A resilient North Carolina depends on our ability to rebound, adapt and thrive amid changing conditions and challenges.
The Resiliency Program works to build a stronger North Carolina, where communities, economies and ecosystems rebound, adapt and thrive amid changing conditions and challenges, including disasters and climate change.
NCORR partners with local governments, state agencies and community organizations to improve resiliency in:
- Social and financial systems that drive prosperity
- Human-made and nature-based infrastructure
- Ecosystems and natural habitats that provide critical services and assets
- Health and well-being of North Carolinians statewide
Program staff coordinate the State Disaster Recovery Task Force, which brings together experts from many organizations and disciplines to advise state agencies on recovery and resiliency. The team also provides technical assistance and guidance to local governments looking to build resilience into their overall operations or specific projects
