LA Awarded Rockefeller Foundation Grant

LOS ANGELES — On Dec. 4, Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that Los Angeles has been selected by the Rockefeller Foundation to join its 100 Resilient Cities Network, which includes funding to implement a comprehensive resiliency plan.  

“Being a member of the 100 Resilient Cities Network provides support and funding for our most basic needs: safety, sustainability, and disaster preparedness,” Garcetti said. “This grant will help our city prepare to withstand and recover from disasters while still maintaining essential functions.”

As part of the program, Garcetti will designate a city chief resilience officer to lead the city’s comprehensive resiliency strategy with the support of the 100 Resilient Cities network partners.

Los Angeles was one of almost 400 cities across six continents to apply for the 100 Resilient Cities Challenge, which will also provide Los Angeles with access to tools, technical support and a global network to share best practices on resiliency.  Only 30 cities worldwide were selected as inaugural members of 100 Resilient Cities.
