Supporting Drought Resilience Through State Planning
Drought impacts multiple sectors of society, so drought mitigation needs multiple state and federal agencies to coordinate a response. While significant federal funding is currently available, these funding sources require planning documents at the state level. These State and local planning documents are often siloed, and states, tribes, and local communities may not know which source(s) of funding will meet their specific needs. Watch this webinar to learn from the state of Nevada, where collaboration among multiple state and federal agencies is underway to more comprehensively address and mitigate against drought.
