Project Background
The Resilient NJ Municipal Assistance Program supports municipalities in integrating climate change science into their planning and decision making, creating a future that is more resilient to the effects of extreme heat, sea level rise, coastal storms, extreme precipitation, and other impacts of climate change.

As more extreme weather occurs in New Jersey, the need to prepare for these events has become a priority. Municipalities like the Township of Ocean, located along the coastline, unfortunately are more likely to receive damage from these more frequent weather events including storm surge and localized flooding.

The Township of Ocean has addressed local storm recovery and resiliency issues for several years, such as through the preparation of a variety of plans and studies funded as part of the Post-Sandy Planning Assistance Grant program, including the preparation of a Master Plan Reexamination Report addressing resiliency issues. The planning work completed as part of these efforts will help inform this work for the Municipal Assistance Program.
