The Community Resilience + Equity Program (CR+EP) is a new program that is working collaboratively with community partners, identifying and addressing system gaps, and aligning interests and efforts, to build community resilience and ensure that no one group is more impacted than another in an emergency. CR+EP refocuses work previously done by the Vulnerable Populations Action Team (VPAT, established in 2006) to reach a wider audience and to align programming focused on health and wellness, climate change, equity and preparedness into a broader framework of resilience.
In the coming months check back for more information. In the meantime, we are happy to continue to provide the below tools to assist your organizations and agencies in building resilience and addressing equity concerns.
