DETAILS
Interested in reducing flood insurance premiums while enhancing your community's resilience? Save the date for a CRS for Community Resilience Workshop.

We need your help to develop the agenda for this workshop! Please let us know what CRS elements you'd like to learn more about by filling out this brief survey by July 28***** (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RICRS)

The National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) is a federal incentive program that provides flood insurance policyholders with discounts on their premiums in exchange for their community taking actions to reduce flood risk. This free workshop will specifically highlight how communities may achieve success in the green elements of the program.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Identify natural and beneficial functions of floodplains and how they increase community resilience;
  • Explain how to use the CRS Green Guide and other tools to improve their community's scores in CRS with elements that enhance community resilience;
  • Describe best practices for achieving success in the CRS program; and
  • Recognize actions that are credited through specific elements of the CRS program.
Speakers: local CRS Coordinators, ISO/CRS specialists, and staff from the Association of State Floodplain Managers, Coastal States Organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and others.

Target Audience: Floodplain managers, planners, and other local officials who are interested in joining the CRS or learning more about its "green" elements and CRS Coordinators who would like to give more attention to elements that will enhance the resiliency of their community and the natural environment.

While this workshop is not intended to be a primer on the CRS program, individuals with all levels of experience with the CRS program are welcome to attend.

Funding for this project is provided by the Department of the Interior through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation's Hurricane Sandy Coastal Resiliency Competitive Grant Program.
