Vulnerability Assessment & Action Plan (VAAP)
The City of Tarpon Springs has been awarded a grant through the Florida Resilient Coastlines Program administered by the Florida Department of Environmental Program. This program supports local communities like Tarpon Springs in assessing vulnerabilities to coastal flooding and erosion and to develop strategies to make affected areas more resilient. The VAAP is aimed at preparing Tarpon Springs for the effects of coastal flooding, erosion, and ecosystem changes including consideration of the effect of rising sea levels.
