Kerr-Tar and NCORR are is facilitating our region’s involvement in the Regions Innovating for Strong Economies and Environment (RISE) Program to develop a portfolio of priority projects that strengthen regional resilience.
The Program pairs a Vulnerability Assessment which identifies communities and infrastructure at risk from natural hazards, with a Project Portfolio, which defines 5 projects that can reduce risk and
enhance resilience.
What type of projects would you like to see implemented in the region? We need to hear what projects should be prioritized to make Granville County and the rest of the Kerr-Tar region ready to answer future challenges.
