About The MVP Program

The Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness grant program (MVP) provides support for cities and towns in Massachusetts to plan for resiliency and implement key climate change adaptation actions for resiliency. The state awards communities with funding to complete vulnerability assessments and develop action-oriented resiliency plans. The program helps communities to:

  • Define extreme weather and natural and climate related hazards
  • Understand how their community may be impacted by climate change with a Massachusetts specific climate change clearinghouse with the latest science and data: link to
  • Identify existing and future vulnerabilities and strengths
  • Develop and prioritize actions for the community
  • Identify opportunities to take action to reduce risk and build resilience
  • Implement key actions identified through the planning process

MVP certified providers are trained in workshops across the state to provide technical assistance to communities in completing the assessment and resiliency plan using the Community Resilience Building Framework. Towns and cities will then be able to choose the provider of their choice from a list of certified providers.

Communities who complete the MVP program become certified as an MVP community and are eligible for MVP Action grant funding and other

Nahant's MVP provider is Clarendon Hill Consulting.
