Building Resilience Against Climate Effects: Enhancing Community Resilience by Implementing Health Adaptations

The world’s climate is changing.

Some of these changes will likely include more variable weather events, heat waves, heavy precipitation events, flooding, droughts, more intense storms, and sea level rise.

Evidence from the National Climate Assessment outlines how these climate impacts


could negatively affect human health.

These climatic impacts are already underway in the US.

Some existing health threats will intensify and new health threats will emerge.

CDC’s Climate and Health Program (CHP) was formally established in 2009 to support state and city health department efforts to develop and pilot methods to adapt to the current and future health effects of climate change.

State and local health departments were previously funded by the CDC CHP to operationalize the Building Resilience Against Climate Effects (BRACE) framework and to produce a Climate and Health Adaptation Plan.The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to support follow-on activities to implement these Climate and Health Adaptation Plans, including monitoring and evaluation of interventions, to reduce the negative health impacts of climate change within the jurisdiction of the health department.

These strategies will utilize evidence-based public health interventions based on existing evidence where possible, and will incorporate monitoring and evaluation.

Climate and health interventions and adaptations will include performance measures for achieving measurable health impacts.

The capacity to address climate change in the jurisdiction will use the 10 Essential Public Health Services (EPHS) as an assessment tool and guide.
