Advancing the Integration of Clean Water Act Programs with Natural Hazard Mitigation Planning & Implementation

January 17, 2023

2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Location: Online

Join us Tuesday, January 17th, 2023, at 3:00pm eastern for a 60-minute informational webinar regarding a new project designed to aid states, local communities, and tribes in integrating their Clean Water Act programs with their natural hazard mitigation programs. This project is being implemented by the National Association of Wetland Managers and the Association of State Floodplain Managers in partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Beginning in 2023 and over the course of five years, we will host one annual in-person training workshop in five pre-determined regions. This introductory webinar will include a background discussion of water and natural hazard mitigation, an overview of current EPA resources to get started, and an outline of the goals and processes of this project in addressing deeper needs. There will be 30 minutes set aside for Q&A and information on the nominating process for those interested in attending a workshop.
