9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge, 14000 OH-2, Oak Harbor, OH

 


 

Join the Association of State Floodplain Managers, Coastal States Organization, Ohio Coastal Management Program, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Old Womand Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve and Chagrin River Watershed Partners for a workshop on the National Flood Insurance Program's (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS)! The 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 workshop will specifically highlight how communities may achieve success in the "green" elements of the program.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Identify natural and beneficial functions of floodplains and how they increase community resilience; 
  • Explain how to use the CRS Green Guide and other tools to improve their community's scores in CRS with elements that enhance community resilience; 
  • Describe best practices for achieving success in the CRS program; and
  • Recognize actions that are credited through specific elements of the CRS program
