The Resilient Florida Program 

On May 12, 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis signed into law Senate Bill 1954. This comprehensive legislation ensures a coordinated approach to Florida’s coastal and inland resiliency. The new program enhances our efforts to protect our inland waterways, coastlines and shores, which serve as invaluable natural defenses against sea level rise. The legislation will yield the largest investment in Florida’s history to prepare communities for the impacts of climate change – including sea level rise, intensified storms and flooding. 

The Resilient Florida Program includes several components. Click on these links for more information:

Community Resources 

The Florida Adaptation Planning Guidebook is a resource for communities interested in vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning. The culmination of more than five years of research and in partnership with many state agencies, the guidebook outlines steps and best practices for local governments. Download the Florida Adaptation Planning Guidebook. Development of the FAPG was funded by the Florida Coastal Management Program and NOAA.
