Infrastructure Resilience Planning Framework: Application to Federal Grants

An IRPF Case Study
Publish Date

CISA’s Infrastructure Resilience Planning Framework (IRPF) can help local and regional governments secure funding to enhance long-term resilience, as illustrated by a multi-county regional planning and development organization in Kentucky. The Green River Area Development District (GRADD) used IRPF resources to analyze critical infrastructure system vulnerabilities and impacts, which helped a rural city overcome obstacles to obtaining federal funding for a mitigation project that would address a known flood risk. Ultimately, application of IRPF guidance led to a more effective use of funds to enhance long-term resilience and prevent future costs of a disaster rather than restore systems that would remain vulnerable.
