Funded by Oxfam America, the aim of the project is to develop a strategic action plan that includes a plan to strengthen community resilience, stakeholder education and coalition building, and an advocacy campaign for non-structural policies and programs.  The planning project was accomplished with a series of monthly stakeholder meetings organized and conducted by Steps Coalition. The meetings took place from October 2016 to April 2017.  Representatives from GCCDS participated in the planning process and compiled the results of the work in this final report.

The Mitigation Action Plan documented in this report includes the hopes and concerns relative to the resilience of Gulf Coast communities, identification of current relevant mitigation activity, descriptions of some primary activities and a final list of recommendations.
