The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness grant program (MVP) provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to begin the process of planning for climate change resiliency and implementing priority projects. The state awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. Communities who complete the MVP program become certified as an MVP community and are eligible for MVP Action grant funding and other opportunities.
Weston was awarded a grant in June 2019 for the planning phase, enabling the Town to work on locally relevant and prioritized vulnerability assessments with citizen and staff feedback. It will also be used to update our local hazard mitigation plan.Workshops are planned for the fall of 2019 to begin the process.
