Marin has a number of safety-net providers that deliver essential services to people in need on a year-round basis. The needs range from day-to-day personal emergencies to major events that impact the whole community—including those driven by climate change. During disasters, the clients of these organizations – Marin’s most vulnerable residents – will turn to the organizations that have helped them in previous times of need. Engaging community-based organizations in emergency planning and preparedness efforts now will strengthen their resilience and enhance their ability and confidence to respond when a disaster of any kind strikes.
We will increase the disaster resilience and readiness of a cohort of safety-net organizations serving Marin County residents through three components: small grants; comprehensive technical assistance; and pre-approved grant agreements to be activated in the event of a declared disaster. Technical assistance will focus on strengthening each organization’s ability to continue to operate following a disaster, serving their existing clients and others who have been severely impacted.
This initiative uses an invitation-only application process.
