In the wake of extensive forest fires and flooding across Montana, the SNCC team joined a diverse group of state agencies, Tribal delegations and allied design and planning professionals to assess local community challenges and envision ways to build back better. Representatives from eight affected areas presented disaster impacts and resilient initiatives underway while the coalition worked to optimize collaboration and sharing and scaling of effective approaches. SNCC staff focused on conversations with members of the native communities present: the Crow, Assiniboine and Gros Ventre Tribes.
