Resilient Building Codes Webinar Series: Action at the Community Level


May 26, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT



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

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