DETAILS
Are you interested in reducing flood insurance premiums while enhancing your community's resilience? Join us on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 for a workshop on the "green" elements of the National Flood Insurance Program's Community Rating System (CRS). The 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 feature presentations from local CRS Coordinators who have helped their communities to achieve success in the green elements of the CRS. CRS experts such as ISO/CRS Specialists and staff from the Association of State Floodplain Managers, Coastal States Organization, and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration will also be present.

Target Audience: Individuals with all levels of experience with the CRS program are welcome to attend.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:
  • Identify natural and beneficial functions of floodplains and how they increase community resilience,
  • Learn how to use the CRS Green Guide and other tools to improve their community's scores in CRS with elements that enhance community resilience,
  • Discover best practices for achieving success in the CRS program, and
  • Recognize actions that are credited through specific elements of the CRS program.

We need your help to develop the agenda for this workshop! Let us know what aspects of the CRS you'd like to learn more about by filling out this brief survey by July 28th.

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.

CONTINUING EDUCATION
This workshop is pending approval for continuing education credits through the American Planning Association's American Institute for Certified Planners (AICP) and the Association of State Floodplain Managers' Certified Floodplain Manager (CFM) program.

COST
Free, but registration is required.
