See program guidelines for contact information.
The Resilient and Sustainable Infrastructures Cluster supports research to advance fundamental knowledge and innovation for resilient and sustainable civil infrastructure and distributed infrastructure networks. The Cluster funds research on geotechnical, structural, and earthquake engineering, distributed infrastructure systems management and response to hazardous events. Research on social, behavioral, and economic issues related to natural and technological hazards is also invited. The Cluster plays a major role in the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program (NEHRP), created by Congress by the Earthquake Hazards Reduction Act of 1977.
