Federal Transit Administration (FTA) Emergency Relief Program: Sandy Disaster Aid Resilience Projects

2013

In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) allocated $4. 3 billion of its disaster recovery money specifically for projects in the Sandy-impacted areas that increase the resilience of public transportation systems and facilities to future disasters and the impacts of climate change. Funding for resilience projects was allocated in separate tiers. First, for “locally-prioritized projects,” which include resilience improvements made in conjunction with other recovery and rebuilding projects or lower cost stand-alone projects that could be implemented quickly.

EPA New England Healthy Communities Grant Program

The Healthy Communities Grant Program is EPA New England’s main grant program to work directly with communities to reduce environmental risks in order to protect and improve human health and the quality of life, advance resilience, and preserve/restore important ecosystems. EPA acknowledges that all communities are at risk for climate change and extreme weather impacts, and supports planning and preparation for these impacts within Healthy Communities projects.

New Hampshire Setting SAIL (Science, Assessment, Implementation, and Legislation) Project

The New Hampshire Setting SAIL (Science, Assessment, Implementation, and Legislation) project supports state and local implementation of recommendations from the New Hampshire Coastal Risk and Hazards Commission’s (NHCRHC) report, Preparing New Hampshire for Projected Storm Surge, Sea-level Rise, and Extreme Precipitation, through a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The New Hampshire Coastal Program (NHCP) leads the project through a public-private partnership with the New Hampshire Coastal Adaptation Workgroup (NHCAW).

Climate Change Tree Atlas

October 26, 2010

The Climate Change Tree Atlas helps determine current and future suitable habitat and distribution of 134 tree species in the Eastern United States based on current climate and projected suitable habitat for the year 2100. The Atlas provides detailed information on environmental characteristics defining these distributions for each species, and can be used to develop large-scale projections of species responses to climate change. By taking current distributions of tree habitat in the U. S.

Trends in Extreme Precipitation Events for the Northeastern United States 1948-2007

March 2010

Based on the number and frequency of extreme precipitation events since the release of their 2005 report, entitled "Indicators of Climate Change in the Northeast," the authors sought to update information for this particular indicator in the Northeast, and apply more rigorous analysis to better enable local communities to take appropriate actions.

Patterns and Projections of High Tide Flooding Along the U.S. Coastline Using a Common Impact Threshold

February 2018

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) analyzes "high tide flooding" (also known as "nuisance flooding") in this report, and finds that it is becoming more commonplace due to sea level rise. High tide flooding impacts roads, beaches, parks, and private property, and is generally more disruptive than damaging. However, there are places such as Norfolk, Virginia; San Diego, California; and the U. S Marshall islands where it is currently a serious problem. Even more, with continued sea level rise, flooding is likely to increase.

Coastal Inundation Toolkit

The Coastal Inundation Toolkit was developed by the Digital Coast Partnership Group to help communities understand and address coastal inundation issues - where water covers what is normally dry land. Information and resources are organized into 5 stages: understanding coastal inundation, identifying community risks and vulnerabilities, creating inundation maps, communicating risks and vulnerability, and discovering what others are doing to address inundation. For each of these 5 areas, explanations and guidance are provided with links to the specific resources available from Digital Coast to support that specific step in the process, making this a user-friendly way to support assessments and planning for sea level rise and extreme weather events.

Potential Impacts of Climate Change on Transportation Infrastructure in New Hampshire

April 2014

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) conducted an assessment of the vulnerability of the state’s transportation system, and this report outlines the results, and includes an action plan of adaptive strategies for the department to address climate-related impacts.  NHDOT assets, programs, policies, and activities (APPA) that may be impacted by climate change are discussed. The report also describes NHDOT’s goals to increase the resilience of the state’s transportation infrastructure, and the department's preparedness for natural disasters and climate-related impacts.

Preparing for the Changing Climate: A Northeast-Focused Needs Assessment

June 2011

This report is the first region-wide overview of how communities in the Northeast are preparing for climate change, and what resources and assistance they need to succeed. The intent of the report is to provide a snapshot of the barriers and resource gaps that need to be addressed in order for local, regional, and state governments to effectively plan for and implement climate preparedness strategies.
