Creation & Implementation of an Outreach Plan for a Coastal Hazards Adaptation Team’s Community-Based Resilience “Recommendations”

  The Seabrook-Hamptons Estuary Alliance (SHEA) has helped create, support, and fund the Town of Hampton’s Coastal Hazards Adaptation Team (CHAT). CHAT is composed of members from each Town Board, along with select municipal staff and property owners. The team has met monthly for two years to investigate and learn about various flood adaptation strategies and discuss which might be appropriate and beneficial for Hampton. CHAT used this knowledge to draft a list of 19 targeted recommendations for enhancing Hampton’s flood resiliency against increasing tidal and storm surge flooding.

SHEA is soliciting proposals from qualified consultants to create and implement an outreach strategy, in coordination with CHAT, to bolster public awareness and engagement along with soliciting feedback on and support for those recommendations.

The project can start now and must be completed by no later than June 30, 2022. Please email proposals to Jay Diener, SHEA President, at, no later than 4:00 PM EDT on October 15, 2021. The SHEA Board of Directors will review all of the proposals. SHEA will evaluate proposals according to the evaluation criteria outlined in Section 9 below. SHEA will invite the highest-ranking consultant to enter into a mutually agreeable contract.
