Biden Administration Launches New Climate Portal

Yesterday, the Biden Administration launched a website that provides a live dashboard to help communities see extreme weather and other hazards from climate change, while also providing maps projecting how each community could be impacted in the future. The new Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation portal will help state, local, Tribal, and territorial governments and leaders better track real-time impacts and access federal resources for long-term planning.

In addition to providing more detailed, location-specific data about climate threats, the new portal also brings together multiple federal information sources and funding opportunities to help communities better prepare for and respond to climate impacts—including resilience funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The portal’s Assessment Tool utilizes information from federal initiatives including: Climate and Economic Justice Screening Tool, Building Code Adoption Tracking Portal, and Updated Sea Level Rise data.
