In 2011, five local health jurisdictions were awarded funds to develop plans using the BRACE framework developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The following are summaries of each of the climate adaptation plans created by participating health departments:

These 5 local health jurisdictions participated in conference calls throughout their planning process and shared lessons from their early planning and implementation efforts. Oregon's Climate and Health program developed a summary of lessons learned and a new Resilience Planning Toolkit for Local Health Jurisdictions in Oregon.
