The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Architecture for Humanity announced a partnership to coordinate their components and chapters throughout the Unites States to prepare and be resilient against natural disasters. In September, the AIA/ Architecture for Humanity Disaster Response Plan Grant was awarded to the five Architecture for Humanity chapters in SeattleChicago, New York, Baltimore, and Washington D.C..

Six months later, the grant winners have exercised their leadership in disaster resiliency through local projects and workshops. The grant winners have spearheaded efforts to initiate partnerships with local groups and government agencies, recruit teams of architects interested in resilience and build the chapter's capacity and knowledge in disaster response.
