Coral Abbott

Community Resilience Centers Program Manager, Strategic Growth Council

Coral serves as Program Manager for Strategic Growth Council’s Community Resilience Centers program, which funds neighborhood-scale resilience centers that will provide shelter and resources during climate and other emergencies, while also acting as a year-round hub for community services and programming that build community resilience over the long term.

In her time at Strategic Growth Council, Coral’s work has centered around supporting under-resourced communities to access the funding and other resources needed to address climate change through building capacity and forming key intraregional partnerships. These efforts include the development of the Regional Climate Collaboratives program and the Partners Advancing Climate Equity pilot program on the CACE team, and leading outreach and technical assistance efforts for the Affordable Housing and Sustainable Communities program.
