National Academy of Science: Resilient America Roundtable

Cedar Rapids is one of four pilot communities selected by the National Academy of Science in an effort to research and develop community-based strategies of resilience.  The Community Foundation is participating in the local implementation of the Resilient America Roundtable. The Roundtable and its programs aim to help the nation build resilience to extreme events so that more lives are saved and so that the physical and economic costs of disasters can be decreased and better managed.
