Sea Grant and Coastal Hazards Preparedness

Sea Grant works with coastal communities across the U.S., Puerto Rico and Guam to improve community resilience to coastal hazards. Specifically, Sea Grant engages in vulnerability assessments, resilience planning and social science initiatives to learn from previous coastal storms and better prepare for future storms. Additionally, Sea Grant develops and shares natural hazards preparation and recovery resources for communities and individuals. All of these projects are part of a strategic focus area to ensure resilient communities and economies across the Sea Grant network.
