City of Alameda officials plan to ask the Rockefeller Foundation for $280,000, pursuant to a “resilient city” award announced in December. The item comes before city council tonight.

In December, the Rockefeller Foundation announced that Alameda was one of 33 cities worldwide to join the foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities network. However, no grant amount was announced at that time.

Tonight, Alameda City Council is expected to approve a recommendation from city staff to seek $280,000 from the foundation to participate in the Resilient City program for two years, and appoint a regular Alameda Fire Department Division Chief to serve as Chief Resilience Officer.

The fire department would need to hire a firefighter on a limited term basis to backfill.

The role of the Chief Resilience Officer is to engage and contribute to the worldwide resilient city network and serve as an advocate and liaison to non-100 resilient city network in the San Francisco Bay Area. He or she will also work to create and implement Alameda’s resilience plan and strategies.

Funding for the program is to come entirely from grant sources.
