Webinar: Introduction to FEMA National Flood Insurance Program Community Rating System: a New York State Perspective
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
10:00 - 11:30 AM
Flooding in New York State is a frequent threat and a costly disaster for communities. Local governments, however, can protect their citizens by taking flood risk reduction measures – and reduce insurance premiums as well. Join Syracuse University’s Environmental Finance Center to learn about FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program’s Community Rating System (CRS) program. FEMA’s voluntary CRS program credits community efforts beyond minimum floodplain management standards by reducing flood insurance premiums for the community’s property owners. This free 75 minute webinar will provide an introduction to FEMA’s CRS program, followed by a panel discussion where speakers will share their diverse experiences with the CRS program. Please join us to find out if your community is a good fit for CRS.
This free webinar is co-hosted by the New York State Water Resources Institute, New York State Floodplain and Stormwater Managers Association, and Syracuse University Environmental Finance Center
