Environmental Resiliency Webinar—September 13, 2:00 p.m. ET
Our first webinar of the series will be held on Tuesday, September 13 at 2:00 p.m. ET and discuss steps that public housing authorities can take to promote environmental resiliency in their communities. In this webinar, we will first hear from Natalie Hildt Treat, senior policy advisor for Building Electrification Initiative at Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM). Treat will discuss NESCAUM’s efforts in the field of environmental resiliency, including her work helping states harness the power of clean, efficient electric building technologies to meet their climate and air quality goals.
Next, we will hear a case study about how the Municipal Housing Authority for the City of Yonkers (MHACY) has worked with their partner, Groundwork Hudson Valley, to incorporate environmental resiliency into their neighborhoods. Wilson Kimball, president and CEO of MHACY, and Brigitte Griswold, executive director of Groundwork Hudson Valley, will share how their partnership has leveraged data to understand the most vulnerable areas in their communities and address flooding and urban heat concerns. Please register in advance for this meeting.
