Boston is among 6 U.S. communities selected to receive Partners for Places grant funding for projects focused on resilience and climate action. As the local matching funder, LISC will be accepting applications for emergency preparedness planning and resiliency audits for multi-family affordable housing. LISC is working with resiliency experts and other partners to offer the planning and assessments.
In Boston, there is a significant portion of housing located in physically vulnerable areas such as floodplains. The Partners for Places program funding will support efforts to ensure the homes of some of the city's most socially and economically underserved residents are ready to withstand future climate shocks. This includes plans to offer emergency preparedness planning and resiliency audits for owners and managers of affordable multi-family housing, helping them better protect properties and residents from the impacts of extreme storms, high termperatures and other climate-related disasters.

LISC is proud to partner with the City of Boston Environment Department, HUD's Section 4 Program, and resiliency assessment and sustainability audit experts in this work.
