Greetings, NHMA members.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Community Resilience Program is investigating the experiences and expectations of local staff and officials with respect to community resilience, adaptation, and sustainability planning. Responses will help us understand the needs of local communities and inform the development of future tools and support.

We invite you to share your opinions and experiences with us by participating in the following survey, which will take around 20 minutes to complete. Your responses will be confidential and only reported in aggregate.
