Coastal Community Resilience Index

Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium

Gulf coastal communities expressed the need for baseline data they could use to assess how they are progressing towards their goals to become more resilient. This self-assessment tool helps communities identify vulnerabilities, capitalize on strengths, and assess future impacts of natural disasters. It has been completed by 47 communities across the Gulf of Mexico with 74 facilitators trained to deliver the tool and provide technical assistance to the communities in which they live and work. An accompanying small grants program provides communities financial resources needed to address action items identified in the self-assessment.
