A Meeting for Mayors and More — As cities tackle the biggest issues — including climate change, infrastructure, economic revitalization, equity — they often develop the most innovative and effective policy solutions. Mayors, other local elected executive-branch leaders, and their senior staff are encouraged to attend this annual policy gathering (to be held in Washington, D.C., January 25-26, 2019). There’s a discount for new mayors! Source: Mayors Innovation Project ►
Pre-Disaster Mitigation Grant Program — Severe storms, out-of-control wildfires and similar disasters are becoming common occurrences.* States, territories, federally-recognized tribes and local communities can apply for Homeland Security funds to implement “a sustained pre-disaster natural hazard mitigation program.” The goal is to reduce the overall risks to people and places while also reducing reliance on federal funding in future disasters. The deadline is January 31. Source: Grants.gov ►
Livable Wins — Several of our publications (including this e-newsletter) received awards in 2018. (Follow the link to see the “win list.”) Several new free booklets — about housing, community engagement, economic development and more — will be released in early 2019. Thank you for being part of our audience. Source: AARP Livable Communities ►
