This survey-based study provides a comprehensive outlook and data baseline on climate resilience in Massachusetts from the point of view of municipalities. Disseminated to all of Massachusetts’ 351 municipalities in August-October 2021, the survey received responses from 111 municipalities.  This study is part of the local engagement activities of the Northeast Center for Coastal Resilience (NCCR), a knowledge hub involving campuses of the University of Massachusetts system. The survey results will be used to align the hub mission, research activities, and deliverables with the actual regional needs of municipalities, planning agencies, decision-makers, and practitioners. We will continue monitoring the resilience indicators collected in this baseline study in subsequent studies.
