The Consortium for Resilient Gulf Communities (CRGC) aims to enhance the resilience of Gulf Coast communities in the face of environmental, economic, and social challenges. CRGC brings together researchers, community leaders, and policymakers to develop innovative solutions to the complex problems facing the region, including climate change, disasters, and the COVID-19 pandemic.

CRGC fields the Survey of Trauma, Resilience, and Opportunity among Neighborhoods in the Gulf (STRONG), a longitudinal survey that explores the health and well-being of Gulf Coast residents as they navigate challenges facing the region. If you are a participant and have questions about the research project, please email

Through its research, survey, and outreach efforts, CRGC seeks to build stronger, more resilient communities that can adapt to changing conditions and thrive in the face of adversity.
