In this webinar series, Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) and CDBG Mitigation (CDBG-MIT) grantee staff will learn how upgrading local building codes to reflect resilient construction strategies can position them to better withstand the threats of natural hazards and severe weather events. Participants will learn why resilient building codes matter, how they can build the business case for upgrading their codes, and dive into the various strategies for upgrading codes.

This third webinar will connect the "what" to the "how" and what role participants can play at the local level to address resilience in buildings.
