Led by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) and the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), the RMAT is an inter-agency team comprised of representatives from each Secretariat, called Climate Change Coordinators, who are supported by agency staff, stakeholders, and subject matter experts. The RMAT is tasked with monitoring and tracking the State Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan (SHMCAP) implementation process, making recommendations to and supporting agencies on plan updates, and facilitating coordination across State government and with stakeholders, including cities, towns, and businesses. Learn more in the SHMCAP’s Chapter 8: Plan Implementation and Maintenance.
