Acton Municipal Vulnerability Plan Update (MVP 2.0)

The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness (MVP) grant program was created in 2017 as part of Executive Order 569 to support communities in Massachusetts to identify climate hazards, assess vulnerabilities, and develop action plans to improve resilience to climate change. Acton’s first MVP Planning Report was completed in 2018 and is available here. The Acton Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness Update (called MVP 2.0) aims to revisit the Town’s climate resilience priorities through a community engagement process and to translate those priorities into action.

A Core Team of both community members and Town staff will lead the MVP 2.0 work. The MVP 2.0 Core Team will explore climate impacts; design and lead conversations about equity, vulnerability, and community needs; and develop a project with support from MVP 2.0 funding to address these needs and support resilience.
