1:00pm - 2:30pm Central Time
(starting at 2pm ET, 12pm MT, 11am PT, 10am AKT, 9am HT)
Structural elevation is a proven method for flood hazard mitigation. Elevation reduces the risk of flooding as well as lowering the cost of flood insurance. Elevation can stabilize property values thereby preserving vital tax revenues to local schools and governments. Private cap-ital and grant programs have helped to elevate tens of thousands of buildings in the US, but at least 2 million pre-FIRM buildings remain that are not compliant with minimum NFIP Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) elevation requirements. As NFIP flood insurance rates increase for all pre-FIRM buildings in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), it is important for floodplain administrators to understand how structural elevation projects are put together, where to find financing, and how to educate property owners about elevation.
In this webinar, you will:
Target Audience: Floodplain management professionals, planners, code officials, resilience officers and elected officials who deal with property owners impacted by increasing flood policy rates on pre-FIRM buildings in the SFHA
- Learn how to field questions from property owners about elevation for flood mitigation.
- Gain a broad understanding about structural elevation for flood hazard mitigation.
- Get information on how to plan, finance, and execute a structural elevation project, including tips on how to select a contractor.
