The Santa Barbara County Regional Climate Collaborative has announced three sites selected to participate in the Resilience Hubs program.
A resilience hub is a community-serving facility that can coordinate resource distribution and services before, during, and or after a natural hazard event.
The three sites were Blue Sky Center, Franklin Neighborhood Center and Eastside Library and Girls Inc. of Carpinteria.
The Santa Barbara County Regional Climate Collaborative is a growing multi-sector network of organizations working together to advance climate mitigation and resiliency efforts in Santa Barbara County.
The Resilience Hubs program will provide site hosts with a technical site audit and recommendations to implement energy resilience improvements.
The program will also help to engage the public and develop inclusive decision-making processes for the future hub, and the program will provide up to $15,000 to offset the costs of participation.
Funding for the program comes from a $200,000 grant from the California Resilience Challenge and a $25,000 grant from PG&E.
