E3.20 Resilient Housing Development Specialist VISTA
In collaboration with the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, Ecolibrium3 is working to help individual homes and neighborhood blocks in underserved communities become more resilient to flood events and reduce damaging impacts from extreme precipitation events and WE NEED YOUR HELP to do it! The Resilient Housing Development Specialist VISTA will conduct a landscape analysis within marginalized socio-economic neighborhoods of Duluth, Minnesota to identify the needs of these communities in developing rain ready and healthy housing, including identifying financial and resource needs, community partners, and knowledge gaps. The VISTA will seek additional funding opportunities through grants and/or community foundations to implement the critical next steps towards creating a neighborhood resilient to the impacts of flooding. Then the fun really starts! The VISTA will partner with community organizations and individuals to build capacity to implement the necessary next step(s) in preparing these neighborhoods to be rain ready and to increase their resilience to flooding. This capacity building will support educational campaigns, development and installation of community-based green infrastructure practices, and/or individual property assessments, training, and green/grey infrastructure installation. There will also be opportunities for professional development and networking through presentations and local and regional conferences and meetings. This collaboration is part of a larger partnership, known as the Great Lakes One Water Partnership (GLOW), which will offer guidance and support throughout the appointment. The overall mission of the GLOW partnership is to increase civic engagement, resilience awareness, and innovation capability for communities around the Great Lakes. Help us save homes and neighborhoods from climate change and flooding, while getting the opportunity to educate and talk with neighbors to improve resilience for future generations!
