This webinar will orient coastal managers to taking advantage of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which provides a consistent means of acquiring insurance against flooding from storm surge, precipitation, and other sources. Within the NFIP is the Community Rating System, which rewards communities that go above and beyond minimum flood safety requirements by providing a discount on flood insurance to residents of participating communities. Come and learn practical methods to improve your CRS scores.
