Managing your Community’s Floodplains Webinar

March 30, 2022

9:00 am – 10:00 am
Location: Online

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) provides flood insurance to property owners, renters, and businesses, and having this coverage helps them recover faster when floodwaters recede. The responsibility for reducing flood losses is shared by all units of government – local, state, and federal. Fulfilling this responsibility depends on having the knowledge and skill to plan and implement needed floodplain management measures. The NFIP works with communities required to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations that help mitigate flooding effects. This webinar will discuss the community’s role in the NFIP, the basics of flood maps and data; minimum regulatory requirements; and understanding the community responsibly in administering NFIP floodplain regulations.
