WHAT IS RESILIENT NORTHEASTERN NJ?

Resilient NJ, administered by the NJDEP Bureau of Climate Resilience Planning, is a local assistance to support local and regional climate resilience planning and is the broader umbrella program under which Resilient Northeastern NJ falls. Through Resilient Northeastern NJ, people who live and work in the region have an opportunity to help make our communities less susceptible to flooding and other hazards while improving quality of life. The program is identifying and implementing strategies to improve long-term environmental and economic resilience in the region.
