1/26 - Getting Credit for Open Space: Community Rating System (CRS) Open Space Preservation Tools, Guidance and Success Stories (CM | 1.5)

January 3, 2018

Preserving floodplains as open space helps keep residents, businesses, and infrastructure out of harm’s way and allows communities to return quickly to normal after flooding occurs. Under National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS), it can also help a community earn discounts on flood insurance premiums. FEMA’s 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 webinar will highlight how communities may achieve success in the green elements of the program. This is your opportunity to learn more about nature-based solutions for community resilience, hear success stories from around the country, ask questions, and share input. Three agencies, who are members along with APA in the Digital Coast Partnership, will share their experience and knowledge about tools, regulations and the process for building community resilience through the CRS.

 

This webinar is brought to you for FREE by the APA Chapter Webcast Series. Your APA-IL membership dues go toward supporting the Consortium that provides this opportunity.
