Medfield received a grant from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs to participate in the Commonwealth’s Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) program. The grant also had an expanded scope that enabled the Town to pursue its Natural Hazard Mitigation Plan update simultaneously, with the support of the Federal Emergency Management Administration’s Hazard Mitigation Planning Grant. The MVP program provides supports for municipalities to plan and implement key climate resilience actions using a community-based, multi-disciplinary, participatory planning effort through the Community Resilience Building (CRB) platform. Medfield contracted with the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) to administer the program with the community. The process was guided by a core team that also serves as its Natural Hazard Mitigation steering committee, providing synergy and alignment with both processes.
