Governor Northam awards $1.5M funding to RISE Coastal Community Resilience Challenge winners.

“I am thrilled to announce the six entrepreneur winners of the RISE Coastal Community Resiliency Challenge competition. As we continue to look at innovative and creative ways to address the growing challenge of extreme weather events and sea level rise, these businesses will be leading the charge to develop, test and demonstrate these products and approaches to tackle this ever-growing risk to Virginians, especially those in our Hampton Roads region.” 

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam

CONSTRUCTIS is proud to announce that we were one of the six winners of the inaugural RISE Coastal Community Resilience Challenge, each of which will receive between $160,000 and $310,000 to develop innovative solutions to help coastal communities adapt to climate change.

The challenge follows Gov. Northam’s 2018 Executive Order Twenty-Four, aimed at bolstering Virginia’s resilience to sea level rise and natural hazards while limiting the impact of flooding, extreme weather events, and wildfires.
