  • Hazard mitigation and disaster recovery planning: We provide mapping and research services for FEMA multi-hazard mitigation planning processes and consult on grant applications for and use of disaster recovery funds for restoring neighborhood health.
  • Urban resilience: We also provide holistic urban resilience consulting for neighborhoods and cities engaged in reimagining their economies, real estate markets, and social stability in the face of global economic, environmental, and social change. Our approach to urban resilience encompasses opportunities in the built environment, education, infrastructure, and economic development arenas. We help communities develop a unified vision for the future.
