The Baker Administration announced on August 30, 2022 that Stoughton had been awarded a $218,175 grant through the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) Program.
The grant will be used to conduct an assessment of climate flooding vulnerabilities, develop a town-wide drainage model and identify potential strategies to mitigate climate-driven flooding.
The project includes a community engagement plan to ensure that the model includes the concerns of residents. Additionally, the plan prioritizes outreach to environmental justice communities and climate-vulnerable residents.
We will be looking for information from residents about experiences with flooding and to help us identify potential community liaisons.
This project will take place from August 2022-June 30, 2024. Watch this space for more information!
Please email NepRWA Advocacy Director, Kerry Snyder, with any questions about the project.
