Acknowledgments

The Urban Land Institute’s Urban Resilience program is grateful to The JPB Foundation, which supported this project, as well to other funders who supported much of the research on the site, such as The Kresge Foundation, the New York Community Trust, and the ULI Foundation. The Urban Resilience program would also like to thank the vast ULI network, including the many members, district councils, and product councils that have generously contributed their time and expertise to the briefs included on this site through interviews, research, and project nominations. In particular, the Responsible Property Investment Council initiated this website through the Returns on Resilience report in 2015, and district councils—including ULI Michigan, ULI Idaho, and ULI Houston—nominated projects from their regions to be included in this site launch. Thank you to all who have been and continue to be involved in creating content for “Developing Urban Resilience.”
