Funding and Policy Action Group Meeting

December 12, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

The next Floodplains by Design’s Funding and Policy Action Group (FPAG) meeting is coming up on December 12th from 9:00-11:00 AM. This meeting is an opportunity to learn about emerging funding and policy issues impacting integrated floodplain management across the state and provide direct input to those leading these efforts. The agenda includes:

  • Proposed 2024 Legislation and Budget Items (Skippy Shaw, WA State Government Relations Director at The Nature Conservancy)
  • WA State Coastal Resilience Federal Funding Approach (Jay Krienitz, Coasts and Oceans Management Unit Supervisor at Ecology)
  • WA State Integrated Climate Change Response Strategy (Jimmy Kralj, Climate Resilience Strategy Planner at Ecology)
  • Funding and Policy Action Group Strategic Planning (Jonathon Loos, Floodplain Management Policy Lead at Ecology and Brandon Parsons, Director of River Restoration at American Rivers)

The WA State Integrated Climate Change Response Strategy will develop a coordinated vision across multiple state agencies to address the impacts of climate change through state laws, policies, regulations, rules, procedures, agency technical capacity and funding – including a state coordinated response to federal funding. The team leading this effort will provide a report back to the State Legislature in September 2024. Engagement now will be a great opportunity to share the climate risks your community is facing, the policy improvements needed to address them, and the funding and capacity needed to effectively implement your goals.
