The Hampton Roads region of Southeastern Virginia is embarking on an ambitious transformation over the coming years to meet its resilience objectives in five key areas, including Reconnecting Neighborhoods. The region is looking to enhance the economic prosperity of low and moderate income urban neighborhoods which have been disconnected physically, economically, and digitally from the rest of a thriving city.

Hampton Roads, in partnership with RISE Resilience, seeks innovative products and approaches that address five key resilience topics. RISE will use up to $1 million in its Resilience Innovation Fund to support teams with financially sustainable solutions that enhance the resilience of coastal communities, can be demonstrated in Hampton Roads, and are scalable to other coastal communities. Innovations will also be considered for full-scale regional follow-on contracts.
