TBRPC to study resiliency and sustainability at MacDill AFB

The Military Installation Resilience Review will foster, protect, and enhance military installation resilience and sustainability

The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council was awarded a Community Economic Adjustment Assistance for Responding to Threats to the Resilience of a Military Installation grant from the Department of Defense. The 18-month, $570,000 grant is designed to examine the long-term resilience and sustainability of MacDill Air Force Base and its surrounding community.

The Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council will complete a Military Installation Resilience Review, which is a community-driven initiative to analyze risks and future climate conditions and implement actions to foster, protect, and enhance military installation resilience and sustainability. “I am excited for this opportunity to collaborate with MacDill Air Force Base,” said TBRPC executive director Sean Sullivan. “This grant provides an important vehicle to our continued regional resiliency planning work, and the military installation review can be shared with other military base communities, furthering resiliency planning across the nation.”
