The Rural Center is seeking three towns in Eastern North Carolina that have flood and disaster mitigation experience to host a resiliency training workshop.
Each town will host a daylong training seminar with support from the Rural Center.
Selected towns will receive a $5,000 award/stipend for hosting the training. The objectives are to give local community and business leaders the training and tools they need to increase their disaster resiliency, and to ensure more successful post‐disaster economic recoveries in Eastern North Carolina.
Only communities/small towns with a population of fewer than 7,500 people within the specified 39-county geographic area are eligible to apply. The deadline to apply is Aug. 31, 2015.
Download the Request for Proposals for more information and explanation of requirements. The three towns will be selected through a competitive process. If you have any questions, please write firstname.lastname@example.org.
