The COResiliency Resource Center is the online, interactive hub for resiliency knowledge and resources in Colorado. Through a variety of training modules and webinars, case studies, templates and model plans, grant information, etc., the Resource Center provides critical tools for communities and their stakeholders to integrate resiliency into every-day activities.
The Resource Center is aimed at a variety of audiences, including local government agencies, elected officials, community organizations, the private sector and individual resiliency champions.
The Resource Center is a product of the Colorado Resiliency Framework, the State's roadmap to resiliency. The Framework represents the State of Colorado's commitment to a more resilient future, identifying concrete actions State agencies can take to reduce risks and vulnerabilities.
If you have ideas on how to advance resiliency in Colorado, please send them to CRRO resiliency program coordinator Rob Pressly or fill out the form on the Contact Us page and we will be sure to incorporate them into future updates of the Resource Center.
The Understand section lays the groundwork for what resiliency is and why it matters.
The Plan section provides resources for those interested in taking the next step and developing resiliency plans and policies. This section has tools and templates to guide users through the process.
The Act section (under construction) will provide guidance, best practices and other resources for implementing resiliency projects and integrating resiliency planning local plans, policies and day-to-day activities. This section will include tools such as a resiliency grants database, case studies, and links to key implementation resources.
Following our most recent major disaster, the September 2013 floods that impacted communities in 24 Colorado counties, communities and the State of Colorado made clear that resiliency was not simply something we wanted to do. It is something we must do to ensure our safety, vitality and unique way of life into the future."
