FEMA’s New Flood Insurance Rating Methods and What it Means for Floodplain Managers, March 22, 11:30-1:00

You may have heard the term “Risk Rating 2.0” over the past several months. It’s been in the news, and it’s been the topic of several training webinars from FEMA, the Association of State Floodplain Managers, and other like-minded groups. You may be wondering: what are the basics of Risk Rating 2.0? What does it mean for local floodplain administrators? Does this change how new or revised maps impact flood insurance rates? How can you help homeowners understand how the new rating impacts them? If you’d like the answers to these questions and more, please join the New York State Association of Floodplain and Stormwater Managers for a high-level overview of the changes you should be aware of related to Risk Rating 2.0.
