Thank you all for coming today. Here's the link to the paper on affordable housing and the threat of SLR and coastal flooding in Environmental Research Letters: https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1748-9326/abb266
And a summary report is here: https://slr.s3.amazonaws.com/2020%20AH%20%26%20SLR%20Summary%20Report.pdf
Here's the link to the mapping tool that Kelly is demonstrating: https://sealevel.climatecentral.org/maps/
And we have a tutorial online to help you with the mapping tools: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4W6pZcerRsA&feature=youtu.be
Millions of households across the nation are at risk for eviction due to lost wages and unemployment and yet we know how dangerous this scenario is for securing household health as shelter is a mitigant for viral spread
housing needs to be retrofit with increased ventilation and containment of units to prevent spread of viral loads
For Steven Koller: There are both regional public works infrastructure projects (ideally, more nature-based than the usual) and site or property-specific mitigation strategies (ranging from elevation to flood-proofing) that Laurie is discussing now. Both are often relegated to specific federal terms.
Here's the story that Laurie is talking about: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/16/nyregion/new-york-basement-boiler-penthouse.html

Great question, Stephanie. Gentrification of all kinds reduces affordable housing and limits housing options for low and moderate income households. Right now, studies are just beginning to show whether some of the gentrification we're seeing is climate-related versus the usual tight market pressures. In either case, the only way to address this is to preserve affordable housing in existing communities while allowing residents who want to move have options
@David yes if the boiler is not secured properly it will be. But if it's structurally sound and built to code we shoudnt have an issue
Just as a top floor won't fly off or a roof

Best practice for Community Engagement is partnering with an NGO or local community leader and working with them to identify leadership and local community advisors. When engaging communities keep in mind: language needs, time of meeting, access, whether you stipend attendees.
Here's the Anacostia project that Tom Chase is speaking about: https://www.newecology.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Case-Study_Villages-of-East-River.pdf
Tommorow Enterprise is teaming with FEMA and HUD on an event "Equity in Mitigation Planning" at 1:30. RSVP here: https://bit.ly/2Jtx7gl
Tom is also sharing this site, the MA Department of Housing and Community Development's Design & Construction Guidelines: https://www.mass.gov/service-details/design-construction-guidelines-standards
Community Engagement Best Practice- develop relationships among emergency management and housing providers who can use the hazard mapping process to identify neighborhoods at risk. Work with neighborhood groups to make sure residents understand their risks and the programs that can help them strengthen their homes.
Great example of a ground up resilient multifamily housing project out of Freeport NY paid for by CDBG-DR https://www.bing.com/images/search?view=detailV2&ccid=uPaUYHiS&id=2F152075E68D358D8FB3F68D65285BE6C2741466&thid=OIP.uPaUYHiS6IzwWwRU-WGSvAHaE6&mediaurl=http%3a%2f%2fcdn.newsday.com%2fpolopoly_fs%2f1.11534646.1457042547!%2fhttpImage%2fimage.jpeg_gen%2fderivatives%2fdisplay_600%2fimage.jpeg&exph=398&expw=600&q=moxby+rigby+freeport&simid=608045340922547804&ck=46600360932900E62B15CE248184818C&selectedIndex=1&FORM=IRPRST&ajaxhist=0
And many repeated loss communities that have experienced one flood after another ARE resilient! We need to support in any way we can.
