Resilient Nantucket

Protecting your family, home or business from damage caused by flooding is essential. Resources available from the Town of Nantucket and its state and federal partners can help you with that task as a property or business owner. Understanding the unique needs of adapting properties in a National Historic Landmark community takes people with specialized knowledge. The Town of Nantucket is pleased to have such expertise available for our community members through an Action Grant obtained from the Massachusetts Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program. On September 18th at 11:30 am and again at 6:00 pm, you can meet these adaptation professionals and learn how to better prepare your historic property for a future of rising seas. The Town of Nantucket will host two online community forums for property owners, business owners, residents, real estate, insurance, Town staff and design professionals interested in learning more about programs available through the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the State of Massachusetts and the private sector in support of disaster preparedness, adaptation planning and community resilience.
