Resilience planning across all domains has become a crucial part of national, state, and local discourse in recent years. We know that the best design ideas engage the community and deploy innovative solutions. However, these ideas must be integrated with an understanding of policies and funding streams at all levels of government. Identifying appropriate financing strategies is an integral part of a successful resilience design.

It is essential to engage policy makers and funders in early planning phases to better understand how policy can influence funding opportunities for resilience. Architects, planners, landscape designers, policy makers, financiers, and funders can, and should, work together to improve this critical part of the resiliency design process.

In June 2018, the AIANY Design for Risk and Reconstruction Committee (DfRR) and the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) launched a unique conversation bringing together diverse players involved in resilience planning. The June 7 interdisciplinary panel discussion focused on understanding the cross-industry relationships and strategies that are essential to addressing the complexities of planning, financing, and insuring waterfront plans and projects. Participants left with new knowledge about creating a project funding strategy, along with a checklist of experts and professionals required to develop a successful project.

Following up on the June 7 program, this session will focus on ways to implement funding policy strategies for resilient design plans. Leading speakers will frame the discussion, followed by table discussions led by facilitators who are working in this area. Select case studies on Jamaica Bay and other examples from the New York-New Jersey Harbor region will inform the discussions.
