Case Studies

Colorado Hazard Mapping: Senate Bill 15-245 created a 3-year natural hazard mapping program to be implemented by the Colorado Water Conservation Board and the Colorado Geological Survey. The State’s method of addressing the is unique due to its integrated, multi-hazard approach, including the development of new methodologies for erosion, coupled with the State’s proactive approach to funding this initiative during the rebuilding process, rather than waiting for federal funds to become available long after the recovery is complete 

Resilient Design Performance Standards: The Boulder County Collaborative received CDBG-DR funds from HUD for work that addresses the long-term disaster recovery needs from the 2013 floods. As part of their responsibilities in administering this funding, the Collaborative needed to develop resilience performance standards for any infrastructure projects the funds would be used for. To address this requirement, the Boulder County Collaborative set forth on developing the Resilient Design Performance Standard.
