Explore a New Option for Making Buildings More Resilient

On July 28, CREW will present a webinar at which a panel of experts will explain how Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE) financing can be used to pay for retrofit and construction projects that improve the seismic resilience of commercial buildings.

This seismic application of CPACE is available in a growing number of jurisdictions across the country. The webinar is an opportunity to learn more about how it works, how CPACE programs are started, and when and where seismic strengthening projects are eligible.

CREW has also produced a short CPACE for Seismic Strengthening primer, which offers a general overview of the topic, outlines a few of the benefits, incentives, and issues involved, and lists additional information and resources by state (western U.S.).

Check out the primer and bring your questions to the webinar on July 28!

Prepare Pets for Disasters, Too

It’s not too late to remind people in your network that June is National Pet Preparedness Month. This is a great opportunity to send out a message to encourage pet owners and those with service animals to include them in their family emergency plans, prepare pet emergency kits, and think through how and where they’ll evacuate with their animals if the need arises.

Share the Prepare your Pets for Disasters page on the Ready.gov website.
Ready.gov also has a free Pet Preparedness Social Media toolkit, where you can download graphics and videos and find ready-made messaging on a variety of pet-preparedness topics.
