The New Jersey Resiliency Institute is the research and outreach arm of the New Jersey Coastal Coalition.
New Jersey Resiliency Institute hopes to develop solutions that will build more resilient communities in New Jersey
The institute does this by educating citizens and researching solutions that will will enable communities in Atlantic County to mitigate the risks associated with flooding and extreme weather.
Preparation is key to protecting your family and your belongings. So take the time to prepare for a storm before bad weather is forecast, on a quiet evening when you have some spare time.
The NJRI in cooperation with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineering, FEMA and the NJDEP is developing tools for community resilience that will reduce flooding risk for taxpayers and establish the NJRI as a national leader.
Through education, outreach, assessment, research and our partnership with the New Jersey Coastal Coalition, the NJRI is a resource for communities adapting to changing ecological conditions.
Don’t be caught unaware, everyone lives in a flood zone
Storms can bring flooding and power outages that will leave you stranded in your home. These outages aren’t easy to anticipate, so it pays to have the essentials on hand.
Building a more resilient New Jersey will mean adapting to the realities of flooding.
Here we provide a variety of links to maps, tools, reports and web sites that will allow you to prepare for the flooding that is projected to impact New Jersey’s coastlines in the future.
