The Federal Emergency Management Agency has granted $750,000 to a program that already is experienced in working with city leaders along the Texas coast and other Gulf states.
“We’re the first cooperating technical partner in this region that FEMA has funded to go in a new direction with community outreach,” said Steven Mikulencak, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program specialist with the Texas Coastal Watershed Program.
The project, which is jointly administered with Texas Sea Grant at Texas A&M University, includes three components:
- County resiliency support
- Training for city leaders
- Digital scenario mapping workshop for citizens and officials
