Don’t miss today’s webinar: Leveraging the Community Rating System for Climate Adaptation
How can communities both save money AND adapt to climate impacts like increased flooding? Learning how to take advantage of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) is a great place to start. The CRS is a voluntary incentive program that recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities that exceed minimum NFIP requirements. As a result, flood insurance rates for local government, businesses and residents are discounted to reflect the reduced flood risk resulting from community actions.
Please join the Southeast & Caribbean Climate Community of Practice (SECC CoP) TODAY at 2:00 p.m. for a webinar on leveraging the community rating system (CRS) for climate adaptation planning.
