UPCOMING EVENTS OF INTEREST (EXTERNAL, NON-MASSFM)
The NFIP: What's Old is New Again Webinar - 9-2-2021 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
Over the past 2 years, New Jersey has relaunched their NFIP outreach program by going back to NFIP basics and utilizing key NFIP principles to address concerns identified by FEMA audits. This relaunch led to the development of a streamlined model ordinance process, a model permit, and a substantial damage template as well as an upcoming Floodplain Administrator Guidebook. In this webinar, Rebecca Jones and Kenya Lovill of New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection will give an overview of these work products and discuss key learnings from implementation.
Attendees will learn about applicable NFIP lessons learned that can assist local governments in meeting current and future floodplain challenges. Hopefully, this presentation will help reinvigorate an appreciation for how groundbreaking some of these rules are even though they date back 40 to 50 years.
