LIAA is currently implementing this multi-jurisdictional planning process in five coastal communities around the State of Michigan. The project mission is to foster and support community‐wide planning efforts that lead to the adoption of significant revisions to existing master plans to promote community resilience in the face of rapid economic changes and increasing climate variability. Working with project partners around the state, LIAA provides a full range of professional planning and technical support services to participating communities.

Generous funding for the Planning for Resilient Communities program is being provided by the Kresge Foundation, the Americana Foundation, The Margaret A. Cargill Foundation, the Michigan Coastal Zone Management Program, and the University of Michigan Water Center.
