Introduction This research is a part of the Resilient Home Program (RHP) which is a federally funded partnership between government, academia, and private and non-profit organizations working to improve the lives of homeowners following natural disasters. As a part of this program, we are evaluating sustainable and resilient mitigation techniques for homes susceptible to natural disasters and investigating how these techniques are affected by continuously evolving building code criteria. Furthermore, we are developing a framework to measure the vulnerability to natural disasters of residential homes. This research relies on input from industry professionals and academic experts through interviews and online-based surveys. Ultimately, the results will influence the weighting and scoring portion of the Resilience Scoring Utility system (a resilient home rating system currently being developed by the RHP).
