The Biden administration is providing $1 billion to states, territories, rural communities, and tribes to prepare for hurricanes and other extreme weather events that the governmentview as being linked to climate change.
President Joe Biden said Monday he will double US emergency spending to help communities prepare for hurricanes and other extreme weather events, while launching a new effort at NASA to better understand and track the effects of climate change.
The US alone suffered 100 weather and climate-related disasters last year, loss of over 100 billion dollars each.
FEMA will make available $1 billion for the Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program, which helps states, local communities, tribes, and territories realize disaster and natural disaster preparation efforts and mitigating their risks.
