State and local policies

State Policies

  • Participate in existing relevant municipal leagues. An example is the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy.
  • Organize regional or state-wide coalitions, such as a mayoral caucus, of local jurisdictions to participate in the development of state policies and programs.

  • Identify which municipal referenda are influenced primarily by state aid.
  • Understand if your city employs lobbyists and explore potential pathways for their work on resilience issues.
  • Create opportunities (resources and events) for local constituents to interface with leaders of local resilience efforts in order to further inform residents on relevant local and state policies.
