Coastal Resilience

The South Central Regional Council of Governments (SCRCOG) was selected by the U.S. Department of the Interior as a recipient of a $700,000 Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant.  The funding allowed SCRCOG in partnership with the Greater Bridgeport Regional Council (GBRC) and The Nature Conservancy to create a Regional Framework for Coastal Resilience in Southern Connecticut. Through this collaboration, there was an assessment and advancement of opportunities to reduce risk from large-scale storm events, and increase the viability and resiliency of natural ecosystems along approximately thirty percent of Connecticut’s coastline.

The focus area was ten coastal communities in South Central Connecticut. Seven of the communities, Milford, West Haven, New Haven, East Haven, Branford, Guilford, and Madison, are members of SCRCOG. Three coastal communities, Fairfield, Bridgeport, and Stratford, are members of GBRC.
