Webinar Summary:

In November 2021, President Biden signed into law the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The generation-defining legislation articulates a strong commitment to advance climate change preparedness. However, now the focus must shift towards finance and implementation of initiatives outlined in the Act and other federal programs, begging answers to questions, like, what local implications and opportunities for partnership should ULI members be aware of? How can coastal communities prepare for funding and competitive grants? What are the community-level needs and barriers that need to be overcome to leverage federally supported resilience projects? The ULI Coastal Forum discussed these critical questions and created an opportunity for attendees to connect with experts in real estate and land use development on local strategies to foster climate resilience in coastal communities. Hear from experts and leaders in the field on community needs and barriers to federal-supported resilience projects and the various federal initiatives that can be leveraged to advance coastal resilience.  

This event was organized by the ULI Coastal Forum, with support from the ULI Urban Resilience program. The mission of the Coastal Forum is to convene, collect, and share best practices and emerging market trends in coastal real estate development and community resilience, focusing on strategies to protect and strengthen communities at risk due to sea level rise, storms, and other climate hazards through innovative infrastructure and real estate projects within coastal areas.

The Coastal Forum seeks to provide an opportunity for members to meet and build a network with peers of different professional backgrounds involved in coastal development and/or resilience. 

  • Offer a forum to share best practices for coastal development, resilience, and planning
  • Provide a targeted group to share and provide private sector input into new tools and resources
  • Provide an opportunity for leadership and expertise development in coastal development and resilience
