Pew Expresses Support for Flood-Ready Provisions in Infrastructure Bill
Letter outlines how pre-disaster mitigation, transportation resilience, and nature-based solutions can help address climate impacts
The Pew Charitable Trusts sent a letter Sept. 8, 2021, to U.S. House of Representatives leadership in support of the flood-readiness elements in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which passed the Senate on Aug. 10. The letter explains how the legislation’s proposed funding boost for pre-disaster mitigation, creation of a transportation resiliency program, and embrace of nature-based solutions to reduce risk can better prepare the nation’s infrastructure and communities for the growing threat of flooding and other disasters.
