Saturday, September 2

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell, and Senior Advisor to the President and White House Infrastructure Coordinator Mitch Landrieu recently announced the selection of projects to receive a total of nearly $3 billion under President Biden’s Investing in America agenda to increase community resilience to climate change and extreme weather events.

“Our local and community partners are the first responders when extreme weather events unfold, and they are on the front lines of building our nation’s resilience to the impacts of climate change,” said DHS Secretary Mayorkas.

“Though FEMA will always help communities respond and recover to these disasters, it is also paramount to build resilience before disasters strike,” said Administrator Criswell.

“Millions of Americans in communities big and small feel the effects of climate change each year from drought, extreme heat, wildfires, and floods,” said Senior Advisor Landrieu. “These projects will be a lifeline for many communities as we build a stronger, more resilient America.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Mayorkas to be discerning as he oversees the Department of Homeland Security.
  • For prudence for Administrator Criswell as she coordinates the federal response to disastrous weather events.
  • For the president and his advisors as they create and implement plans to address climate and severe weather.
