Funding: ASFPM.

Partner: ASFPM NAI Policy Committee.

The Flood Science Center in partnership with the NAI Policy Committee will develop a new Legal Issues Guide. The new Guide will help update the legal resources that support NAI and flood risk management overall. The new legal resource will be publicly available through ASFPM’s digital library and aimed at varied audiences including floodplain administrators, elected officials, attorneys and planners. The resources collected and developed will include, but are not limited to topics such as takings, higher regulatory standards, abandoned infrastructure and properties and protecting property rights for all. The legal resources developed will immediately support NAI workshop training and awareness through an ASFPM-wide webinar upon completion of the Guide.
