The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) is partnering with the National Science Foundation and U.S. Department of Energy to launch CIVIC 2022—the next round of the Civic Innovation Challenge.
As a research, design, and implementation competition created to help communities build resilience and improve quality of life, CIVIC 2022 advances priorities for federal government organizations to “listen to the science” and build multi-disciplinary coalitions with stakeholders from state, local, and tribal governments.
In the face of mounting pressures brought by changes in the climate and disparities within vulnerable populations, CIVIC 2022 aims to equip community leaders with real-world solutions that bolster pre-disaster readiness, enhance climate adaption and mitigation, and increase access to essential resources and services.
CIVIC 2022 is comprised of two tracks:
