The Resilient by Design | Bay Area Challenge brought together landscape architects, engineers, financing experts, community leaders, elected officials and more to identify the areas of the San Francisco Bay shoreline most vulnerable to the effects of rising sea level caused by climate change. Teams created many inspiring design concepts to mitigate those challenges and make our Bay shoreline more resilient. Now the big question remains - how do we get these projects started? This workshop will provide more detailed information about possible funding opportunities for local governments and community stakeholders to move projects forward to create on-the-ground impact. At this workshop you will get a chance to talk to experts in public and private funding sources for resilient infrastructure, to learn more about what funding may be available, and receive information about how to put together a possible funding strategy.
