About Resiliency in West Virginia:

In the heart of Appalachia, West Virginia’s need for resiliency is heightened by economic shifts, environmental concerns, and ongoing infrastructure demands. The region is susceptible to natural disasters such as floods and landslides that devastate local communities. Resiliency in West Virginia means fostering diverse industries, investing in infrastructure to withstand environmental threats, and empowering communities to adapt and thrive in the face of adversity. By embracing resiliency, West Virginians can create a more sustainable and prosperous future for generations to come.
