Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program

The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness grant program (MVP) provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to begin the process of planning for climate change resiliency and implementing priority projects. The state awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. Communities who complete the MVP program become certified as an MVP community and are eligible for MVP Action grant funding and other opportunities.

The Town of Canton was recently awarded a $23,000 grant to complete a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program. The Town will be working with Kleinfelder on holding a workshop where key stakeholders will help us determine the Town’s vulnerabilities to climate events. We will use this information to develop an assessment and action plan. This plan will allow the Town to be better prepared in our response to these events. 

The town will schedule an invited stakeholder workshop in November, with a final report expected in January 2019.  Stay tuned for more information.
