The impacts of our changing climate worsen the affordable housing crisis, putting millions of households at risk of displacement.

We have heard from owners and operators that they want to make their properties more resilient to these environmental risks but are unsure what strategies could be both effective and affordable. The Enterprise Climate Resilience Academies, reaching regions throughout the country, are a response to that request for support and guidance. 

Apply by Sept. 15: Rocky Mountain Climate Resilience Academy

Our fifth academy to date, the Rocky Mountain Climate Resilience Academy, is designed specifically for multifamily affordable housing owners, operators, and developers across Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Montana, and Wyoming. The eight-week cohort-style academy kicks off October 5 with an in-person session in Denver, followed by biweekly virtual sessions.

Apply by September 15 to join peers, experts and local stakeholders to learn how to assess portfolio risk, build and retrofit climate-resilient housing, prepare for increased climate disasters, navigate funding and financing from local and federal sources (including the IRA), and more. These regional, cohort-based learning opportunities are for affordable housing owners, operators and developers to engage with one another, content experts and local stakeholders to address the unique hazards of their region.

Tailored Resilience Support

The resilience academies bring together participants to identify critical vulnerabilities, offer solutions and technical assistance to improve portfolio resilience to future threats, and incorporate community resilience strategies.  

Focus areas are tailored to regional needs and include:

  • Assessing portfolio risk
  • Building and retrofitting new and existing housing
  • Understanding funding and financing programs and how to access them
  • Incorporating community engagement and resilience strategies

The session was very informative, as were all those I attended over the past 12 weeks. My participation has truly raised my level of resilience consciousness and better prepared me with tools and resources.
