Wednesday, September 8, 2021. 1:00 PM. Webinar: FEMA NFIP Community Rating System: Public Input Meeting. Sponsored by FEMA. Register here.
FEMA will hold three public meetings remotely via web conference to gather public feedback about the National Flood Insurance Program’s (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS) program. FEMA is seeking input on the NFIP’s CRS program for the agency to consider ways to modify, streamline, and/or innovate to improve the program. These efforts aim to help FEMA ensure that the CRS program includes necessary, properly tailored, and up-to-date requirements that effectively achieve the goals of (1) reducing and avoiding flood damage to insurable property, (2) strengthening and supporting the insurance aspects of the NFIP, and (3) encouraging a comprehensive approach to floodplain management.
The objectives of this meeting include:
• Providing the public with information about the CRS Next change effort;
• Providing the public with information about the exploratory questions included in the
corresponding Federal Register Notice Request for Information (RFI);
• Providing the public with information about how to access the Federal Register Notice RFI and
submit written comments; and
• Providing the public an opportunity to provide verbal feedback.
